George Chudacoff died at age 60 of cancer on Aug. 25. He was a highly respected Northwest flat pick and finger style guitarist, mandolinist and banjo picker. This CD represents his nearly 30-year career playing, recording and teaching music in the Pacific Northwest. Guest musicians include Wayne Henderson along with Helen White; Carol Harley and Laura Quigley of Misty River. Other Northwest singers, musicians and friends join Chudacoff throughout these tracks. Two new voices are introduced and three recordings made nearly 30 years ago were restored for this collection. The CD was produced through the generous contributions of many students and friends and the expert production work of Portland's Fresh Tracks studio. With illustrations by Elizabeth Britton and graphics by Mark Staker, this CD is a tribute to George Chudacoff's music, talent and courage.
