1_edited.jpg

A double-CD recording of 19 of Katherine Jackson French's ballads.  Jackson attempted to publish her collection in 1910 to no avail.  This recording marks the first time Jackson's ballads have been heard.  This recording was funded in part by a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women.

An album of off-the-beaten-path Christmas songs, mostly from the 18th and 19th centuries, plus some contemporary ones.  Recorded at First Baptist Church in Worcester, NY, one of the hidden gems of the Catskill Mountains.

Though we are Kentuckians for the majority of the year now, part of our hearts are always in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York State.  Here is a new spin on old songs from that glorious and wild region.

Good for what ails ye.  Tonic for troubled times. Mostly originals, some New Orleans jazz as well.   Goes on the left side of your bookcase.  This recording was funded in part by a grant from the Puffin Foundation.

An eclectic showcase featuring the melodica skills of A.J., one of today's masters of the instrument.  The album features everything from Mozart to tangos to Sweet Georgia Brown.  Sure to brighten up the gloomiest of days!

Back by popular demand, here is Liza's first studio album, featuring backup work by Barry Mitterhoff, Lui Collins, and Steve Schuch, as well as members of the Folk Project of Northern New Jersey.
