One is never anything but welcome in the presence of Sandy and Caroline. When the Patons and I do our "Cholesterol Bullet" lunches, it is always a gathering of friends that is warm and feels as though it has been going on for years. The fact is that we have only been friends about 5 years. But we tell stories and celebrate friendship. Then we hop in our cars and I head for the Great Lakes and they head for Sharon Mountain. Down the road a bit, it will usually hit me. I will be overcome with the realization that I can count among my true friends two people that are legendary for their efforts to preserve our own legacy of folk music. In the fullness of time, Sandy and Caroline will be remembered as great performers, but their contributions in preserving this marvelous music will be their enduring legacy. The only thing greater than the collection they have built, is the honest love they share with their friends.
Please...........if you call yourself a folkie........go through that catalogue.......buy that music.....and most importantly, share it with your kids.
Love to you both,
