Thread Name: Mudcat CD Series: Orchid
Subject: RE: Mudcat CD Series: Orchid
The Creek is a song I wrote to honor the lives of 2 very important women in Florida literary history --Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Yearling and many short stories which were sketches of Florida Cracker life -- and Marjory Stoneman Douglas, chronicler and protectorr of the Everglades, author of "River of Grass". It was selected Best New Florida Song in 1999 by the Will McLean Foundation, used for soundtrack in an Australian film, selected for a Florida Songwriter's Sampler CD, and featured on The History Channel UK web site. But mot importantly, it features the flute playing of my wonderful wife, (along with the rest of my band, The Ashley Gang)...Looks like I'm in great company! Thanks Amos.
