Thread Name: Folk-Legacy's Newest CD: Ballads & Songs of Trad
Subject: RE: Help: Folk-Legacy's Newest CD
Thanks, Susan, Rick, Art and Kat. And thanks to Dick, too, who posted a note about the new release to the BALLAD-L listserv, which I was reluctant to do myself. I want to tell you all this, though: I probably would never have gambled the money for this release out of Folk-Legacy's limited store. I had some significant financial help in the actual cost of the disc and booklet from the Higgins Foundation, a family fund established by Lisa Null's family, and made available to me by that dear friend (of ours, personally, and of traditional music generally).
Right now, I'm working on a couple of other traditional music releases, also made possible by a contribution from a friend. More about them when the time comes. I do wish productions like these could pay for themselves, but I learned a long time ago that they can't, or don't, anyway. Simple fact of life. Thank God for good friends!
