LesB, (and others)

It sounds like you & I ought to be in touch. I did historical educational performances in the 8 counties of Northern Illinois over several decades. I've got a MAP I should let you see. Might give you some decent ideas for workshops and performances.

I truly RESISTED writing my own songs. But once in a while they would just erupt---in spite of my best intentions. I saw myself as being a presenter of musical antiques---the historical and traditional songs of mainly the U.S.A. For me to do my own songs was, to me, like putting a plastic table in the window of my shop.

But there is a song of mine, a strange little hairball of a song, in the database.
