From: karen k
Date: 31 Oct 01 - 01:16 PM

I hope you all will join me in wishing Folk-Legacy a Happy 40th Birthday - Oct. 31, 1961. I can't find the words that would express how much Sandy, Caroline, David, Rob and Lee and of course all the music has meant to me for the more than 30 years that I have known them.

I can't even begin to imagine what my life would have been like without them.

So Happy Birthday, my friends and here's to 40 more.

Very much love,
k

Thanks, Karen, for remembering this. I should have remembered, as it is also Roger's birthday!

Sandy, Caroline, and family, thank you so much for all that you have done and continue to do for the music we love. Your sharing and the care and love you spread everywhere you go, includig in cyberdom, are incomparable and I will always be grateful.

In my thoughts, often; in my heart, always:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
FOLK LEGACY!

I can do no more then agree with all the sentiments expressed at the "What I learned from Folk Legacy" session at FSGW.

well - yes I can - because "Folk Legacy" was something I recognized when I first started coming to the MudCat - Because that was where a lot of the records in the local library had come from - and a lot of CD's I've spotted more recently; the knowledge and experience that there are real people behind the company means a lot in this day and age.

Saying "Happy Birthday" to such an institution is so lame, it is like saying to Pavarotti, "Nice try". Sandy. I hope you dont mind, but, I'm going to make a suggestion. Folks, you all know that the ecomomy has slowed to a crawl, and, it has hit Folk Legacy too. I see them sort of like NPR, if we dont support them, they wont be there anymore. So, if there is a recording you have been wanting, now is the time to order it. You say you love FL? ok, put your money where your mouth is! MOney talks, bullshit walks, and all other applicable wise sayings!

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!

Sandy,Caroline, Lee (in absentia)---all of you,

Congratulations !!!!!!

I've used up all the words I've got in those other threads where I've striven to tell you and the world what Folk Legacy has meant to me. You've carried the torch for 40 years. And you've done it with more class than all the schools in China. I'm jealous as hell 'cause this year would've been my 40th year singing at Chicago's No Exit Coffeehouse. No matter though. (37 will have to be enough.) Just know that it was a tremendous honor to be a part of your wonderful doings there in your lovely foothills of the Berkshires. Thanks for asking.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!

Well, I'm a day late as usual, but will add my love and my thanks to all of the wishes expressed above. Sandy and Caroline, as people you have made an immeasurable difference in my life. As I told you, I wouldn't have met a single person at the Getaway or at NOMAD -- much less been able to co-lead the "What I Learned from Folk-Legacy" workshop -- if it hadn't been for you. You were at the beginning of many enduring friendships that have blossomed as a result of meeting you guys back in 1970 at the tender age of 16. In the intervening years, you have given friendship, song, and love so freely to me and to so many others. I am so grateful, and so lucky to count you as friends.

And the music! All those wonderful wonderful songs, stories, and tunes. Folk-Legacy has been a great source of education all these years with your wonderful informative booklets, and your practice of recording singers and storytellers that other record companies wouldn't bother to publish. The music has provided enjoyment and and food for our souls for these 40 years.

So three cheers. For Sandy and Caroline and Lee. For Rob and David who are helping carry it on. For Folk-Legacy as an enduring enterprise and labor of love. You're the best! Here's to many, many more.
Love,
Kathy

I hate to be a day late and a dollar short, but I'm getting used to it. I kept thinking of what I wanted to say and after awhile I realized I had no idea what I wanted to say. Rather than think on it anymore, I decided I'd just say something lame like congratulations.

What makes this so hard is obvious from reading the other posts. People can't think of any words that really do express the meaning of what you've done for them and for the music. Joe Offer stopped here the other day and we talked for about 3 hours and of course you were part of that conversation. As I think about it now, it occurs to me that it was the weakest part of the converstion because both of us ran out of superlatives. There was nothing to say that we hadn't discussed here and the only thing I could asked was for some details of the Getaway session, about which Joe was in awe and kinda' speechless, dare I say emotional? (:<))

On a personal level I can only say that your contributions to my health and well being aare far greater than you know and beyond any additional words can express........Thank You both, many times over.

Anyway...........HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY/ANNIVERSARY to FOLK LEGACY..........I'll try to do better at 50.

Spaw

Like a few others here, I find it extremely hard to put into words such a wonderful kaleidoscope of thoughts, feelings, emotions and song that Folk Legacy (esp. Sandy and Caroline)bring to mind. I'm very new to this whole experience, but the continual joy of the quest they bring to each new offering of song. And the gift of cherishing each individual and preserving and passing on and... whoops that kaleidoscope shifted again and I'm running out of words.Sandy please share with Caroline the lyrics I put up today here

Happy Birthday Folk-Legacy!

It was at the old Sam Ash store about 50th Street on the West Side of Manhattan that I first ran across your recordings; that would be about the time you were three years old. I think you were still in Vermont at the time. Thanks for the records of Harry Cox, Paddy Tunney and Cilla & Artie... and I echo RangerSteve's comment above: it was a really great pleasure to find records of New York State singers available. Lawrence Older's recording is one of my favorites of the many that you've produced.

Thank you for taking a personal interest in me, my wife and my friends. Thanks for your help in putting out my recordings. May you live another four times forty!

All the best,
Dan Milner

The friends who put together the celebration at the Getaway are treasures, indeed. What a tribute that was, from people whose hearts overflow with love for you two.

Here's another "if not for you": The handsome guy who just posted above is the only singer of traditional music that my pre-teeny bopper daughters will listen to. And they'll listen to "Irish Ballads and Songs of the Sea" for HOURS. If I ever find my "Irish in America" CD again, they'll listen to that, too. But they've got the songs memorized. And it would warm their Irish great-grandfather's heart.

Folk Legacy is an open door for generations to enter and learn the music of their country, and the countries of their ancestors.

Thank you.

Dani
