Story

My first trip to Ireland, I ended up in a small town on the West Coast called Doolin (which i later found out was a traditional music meca). Upon asking around for a place to stay, I was directed to a man called Miko Russell (whom I later learned was a reknowned traditional Irish musician).  He offered his cottage for visitors to rent. It turned out to be a charming 300 year old stone house on the hill above the town. I was blessed to be able to stay there for a month and just listen to the walls speak!   Lena, my co-writer had a very similar experience, so we put our stories together with Lena's brilliant storytelling flair.

Story

Based on a true story from a newspaper article a friend gave to me. I was touched by the fact the elderly couple were found in the car a week later(sadly they didn't survive) holding hands with a notepad next to them filled with love notes to each other.  I brought the story to Mark Elliot, a talented songwriter on one of my trips to Nashville. He was able to help turn it into a beautfiul, and one of my most requested songs.

Story

When I was 14, I took guitar lessons at a music store in San Jose. My teacher was Jorma Kaukonen, who had just formed a band called Jefferson Airplane!  At the time he was teaching this style of fingerpicking, including this tune. His version of course ended up on the 2nd Jefferson Airplane album.  I did the best I could to do it justice on my Dream's Crossing CD. I sent a copy to Jorma who said he "approved".  :)

One of my first songs. Written during a crazy and exciting trip around Europe with my sister Susie and her husband Martin in an old rattly French car.
