It takes a village to make a record. Thanks to: Chris, Nathan, Mark, Hugh, Bill, Paul, Ginger, Kat, Cindy, Greg, Matt, Garrett, Adrianne, Russ, Nathan, Bob for the music; The Jugbusters, The Halliday Line, The Empties for helping me test drive these songs; Al, Anita, Bobby for the booking support; Nancy and Whitney for the art; Buckeye Banjo for a great instrument; Buddy for being a teacher and an inspiration; The Don't Tell Darlings; all my friends and family; the weird and incredible world of musicians, artists, dancers and rabble rousers without whom the shenanigans could never happen. Thank you all so much!
