about

There Aint No Easy Way - I love Darrell Scott’s
songwriting, one of my faves.

Bourgeois Blues - Huddie Leadbetter (Leadbelly),
and his wife Martha went to Washington in 1937
to record for the Library of Congress. The racist
treatment thet met them inspired this
discrimination protest song.

The Mountain - A moving song from the great
Steve Earle on the lives of coal miners.

Jesus On The Mainline - An old traditional gospel
song that I got from Ry Cooder. A chance to play
with harmonys.

Wing And A Prayer - A song from WW2 and the
precarious lifestyle of bomber crews.
Another song from Ry Cooder.

Over The Garden Wall - A lovely old-timey song
from The Carter Family going back to the 1920s.
I got this from The Foghorn String Band.

In The Pines - I’ve heard so many versions of
this Leadbelly song. I borrowed this one from
Andy Baylor.

Vigilante Man - I recently came across this
Woody Guthrie song that I had recorded in 2004
and forgotten about. It must have been waiting
for the right time to reveal itself.

Lonestar - Nora Jones recorded this song on her
first, sublime album. I always liked it.

In The Galley - I wrote this tune when I was
getting into playing mandolin about 30 yrs ago.
Time for it to see the light of day.

Man Of Constant Sorrow - First recorded by
Emry Arthur in 1928. Made famous in the movie
Oh Brother Where Art Thou. I got this version
from my friend Chris Aronsten.
