Breaking News—December 2012
Just in time for Christmas, Judy Collins has released a new live DVD of a recent performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that includes her version of my song “Veteran’s Day.” Also part of that show are Ani Defranco, Shawn Colvin, Jimmy Webb and Kenny White. It’s a must have for sure.
I’m also back in the US from two years in Germany armed with about 50 new songs. Hope to start the new recordings in January.
I am truly honored to have my anti-war song Veteran’s Day recorded by Judy Collins (in duet with Kenny White) for her latest album Bohemian” on Wildflower Records. She is a great songwriter in her own “write” but also one of the all time greatest interpreters of other people’s works—Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Stephen Sondheim…and many more…it’s a long list.
Through a song contest called Music To Life,” started by Noel Paul Stookey and managed by his daughter Liz, my song found it’s way to Judy who was a judge that year. That was about six years ago and, considering it to be a “jewel” of a song, she grabbed it for herself and a future recording project. That project is Bohemian which also features greats such as Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Webb, old friend Shawn Colvin fellow Woodstockers Ollabelle. I had the good fortune of meeting Judy and catching up with Kenny in Paris in early October, 2011. She put on a very strong performance, to say the least, and had the room singing and stomping at the end. My best wishes for Bohemian‘s success and if Judy is playing anywhere nearby-be sure to go see her-she’s truly amazing.
