Hello all . An old friend of mine, Gordon Titcomb has had a song made into a kids book .. Arlo Guthrie who Gordon has played with for years wrote a nice forward .. I will add a link to a video clip of the song and some of Wendell Miner's pictures . A great idea that has made a wonderful kids book .

All the best to all here .

They are a wonderful combination !!!! Gordon and Wendell are friends from the same town here in Connecticut . Gordon has played music with a lot of the greats . I am hoping this bok dose well for both of them .

Hi, Thanks for the post Guy!

I am probably a not too distant relation to Brent....Brent's son, Liam, and I were playing at the Ontario Folk Festival a couple years back and met each other for the first time in an elevator at the hotel where the performers were staying....we saw each other's name badges and kinda cracked up.... I'll try to find some pics of the two of us together from that festival... there is a strong "Titcomb Family" resemblance.

I first heard Brent singing on the radio back in the seventies I do believe. I was able to get his co-ordinance and wrote him for a vinyl. I received it with a beautiful note included. I think I still have it somewhere.
Thank you for answering my question and the very best with your book .
Adrien

I just read this and thought I would add it to this thread ::


Gordon Titcomb      ><>><>    The American Booksellers Association just
released their Fall Picks for independent book stores: "The Autumn 2010
Children's Indie Next List Preview" features The Last Train by Gordon M.
Titcomb: "You can almost hear the train's whistle from these
expressive, beautifully rendered paintings by Wendell Minor that capture...
the magnificence of that dying steel behemoth -- the steam train. Gordon
Titcomb's song is a sad refrain for the life that was centered around
those engines. Rail enthusiasts -- and others -- will rejoice in this
evocative pairing." -- Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time,
Montrose, CA
