Welcome to the Foggy River band

The band spent hours rehearsing and playing my songs with me. I am sure that it must have frustrated them at times, so I thank them for their patience and friendship.

Alan “Hutch” Hutchinson—Hutch and I started the Foggy River Band together not for financial reward, but for the love of music. I am quite sure I would have quit playing if not for Hutch prodding me along and encouraging me every step of the way. He is one of the easiest guys to get along with. I want to thank him for being my friend.

Jim Rooney—This rock solid bass player is also a rock solid person. He has been our band’s mentor and coach displaying great patience with a great sense of humor. His instructional ability is exceeded only by his musical talent. Without Jim the Foggy River Band would not have gotten off the ground. I am proud to call him a friend.

Pete LaGrow—Co-writer of Great, Great Grand Pa is a self-taught, nineteen year-old whiz kid on the guitar. He came through with the melody when I was struggling with Great, Great Grand Pa. It’s so exciting to have younger people take such intense interest in Bluegrass music. I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of this very special, hard-working young man.

Chad Darou—This incredible multi-instrument musician plays dobro for the band and appears on most of the songs in the album. I want to thank Chad for the untold hours spent working on the project.

Brian Purwin—This amazing lifelong musician plays fiddle on most of the songs on this album. His talent comes from his ability to capture the emotion of every song, immediately lighting up faces of audiences whenever he starts playing.

It’s never too late to follow your passion

At the age of 61 most people would agree it’s too late to publish their first album. I believe age is a state of mind and it’s never too late to follow a dream. A dream that goes nowhere is a wish. A dream with a plan is a goal, and a goal can be accomplished. At the age of 61 most people would agree it’s too late to publish their first album. I believe age is a state of mind.
