I’m grateful for the invitation to join Phil Cooper and Susan Urban (February Sky), now of Trout Lake in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Phil is one of my oldest friends in music & a great folk baroque style guitarist with excellent taste in old songs. Susan plays guitar, banjo, and mountain dulcimer, and composes new songs in the folk tradition. She writes:
“In the old days of the traveling musical bard, people knew that music was not intended to reflect only joy and happiness, but to help them to process the inevitable sadness and loss that is a part of living on this Earth plane. They knew that the purpose of music and storytelling was to make them think and feel, not to numb them into unconsciousness. Although we travel in a Subaru Forester on 4-lane highways, rather than on dirt roads in a horse-drawn cart, February Sky continues this mission.”
