I opened up this crazy music hall literally behind my 200 year old farmhouse in August, 2006. My husband and many talented friends, poured their hearts and souls into literally picking up and moving, and then renovating one of our barns to make what has become this amazing musician's hole in the wall in a little town in rural Maine... the Stone Mountain Arts Center. In the process of presenting so many amazing acts here, and getting to perform here myself, I have been musically awakened and inspired. One of the most inspiring parts of this place, is getting to play with the "Stone Mountain Boys" on a regular basis. It is a stellar band headed up by Duke Levine and Kevin Barry, whom I have been lucky enough to rub shoulders with for many years. When I get to play with them on this stage, I am as happy as a musician could possibly be. So, we decided to capture that feeling, and record right here. It was a perfect recording experience. The room is beautiful, I got to cook for the band, watch Will Ferrell movies on the big screen on breaks, and I got to sleep in my own bed every night, and kiss my dogs and my husband goodnight (not in that order). Oh, yeah and the music... we started out wanting to cover music from the sixties that our parents loved... ya know the cocktail party kind. Well like all recording projects it never goes how you plan and we ended up doing all the songs their kids loved in the sixties instead. Duke was "instrumental" in finding the right songs once we changed our "tune". (okay I will stop with the music puns) Anyway, it is a group of songs that speaks to a time of change, love, war and peace. Hmmm... sounds like today. I hope you like it... and by the way, I also hope you come visit us up here on the hill sometime... I have always wanted to invite you to dinner and a show!
