Today's Featured Music
Spring Beauties was inspired by the small wildflowers we see in early spring. Patches of them are in the woods behind our farmhouse in West Virginia. This ballad was written to have a delicate beauty and a touch of pensiveness. Recorded by James Barr, guitar.

Maryland and West Virginia
Nancy and I divide our time between Olney, Maryland and Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. This area, with the Appalachian Mountains and Chesapeake Bay, is a deep source of inspiration for my music. The Morgan County page has a sample of my WV projects, links to some of our creative friends in the Berkeley Springs area, and a video about our farmhouse.
