"Songs for Sunday"--Quarantine FaceTime Music Sessions

Sunday March 22, 2020


I SING OLD SONGS
This music connects us to our ancestors and history and each other, no matter where we come from. I sing as a way to remember and honor past generations and to draw on the strength and beauty of their song and stories as we travel forward.

I am drawn to the melody, rhythm and quirky words--the old sounds--as much or sometimes even more than the story behind the song. And most of all it's the indescribable, soulful feeling behind the ballads that captivates me. It doesn't much matter whether a song is happy or sad, it's the singing that fills me up, and I wish that for anybody in earshot.

I worked for several years as co-producer of the Mountain Minor, an Appalachian music film--and also played the role of Sandra. This independent feature tells the story of a family’s migration from Eastern Kentucky to Southwestern Ohio, and the ways in which music sustains them across generations.​ ​Please click on this photo for more info.
