Thread Name: Happy 40th Birthday, Folk-Legacy
Subject: RE: Happy 40th Birthday, Folk-Legacy
At the Getaway, many wonderful stories were told about Sandy, Caroline, Lee Haggerty and their child, Folk Legacy Records. Sandy and Caroline themselves told great tales about the people they visited and from whom they collected songs.

Folk Legacy Records has been a treasury of songs and tunes from folks who carry the traditions or write new material in the same rich vein. As a record label, it has enriched all of us who love the music and are looking for living performances of songs that might otherwise be dry bones in a scholarly folklore book somewhere. As people, Sandy and Caroline have nurtured and encouraged both the source singers they recorded, and us newcomers who love the music and want to carry it on.

Happy Anniversary, Sandy and Caroline, and thank you for the love and labor you and Lee have given us for the past 40 years!
