    I have deep gratitude for all of the traditional singers who kept these gems alive, and for the tireless effort of field collectors who captured these voices for all time. I sing these songs in order to keep them alive.

    My thanks and gratitude go to all those who have given me support and encouragement over the years. Jeff Warner, Ian Robb, John Roberts, Alison McMorland - I never would have done this without you. Thanks to Jay Ungar and Molly Mason for the fertile musical stew that is the Ashokan Fiddle and Dance Camp. Thanks to my parents for giving me life and voice, and to Ted for generally putting up with me.
