Talkin to the Birds
Moving to Florida to develop and share my music meant leaving our beautiful Virginia home on five wooded acres not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway. But with almost a hundred original songs in the bag and the experience of entertaining crowds at festivals such as the recent 55rd Florida Folk Festival, I know that I'm walking the right path. The support of fans who enjoy my mix of environmental folk music, social satire, and blues-with the occasional country, rock, or pop tune thrown in for seasoning-has been fabulous, allowing me to grow as a performer and as a songwriter. Most of the songs on 'Talkin' to the Birds' grew out of my first year of returning to Florida after thirty years and enjoying the antics of the wonderful shore birds that I observed every day. And of course the antics of some nutty people, including myself.
