I don't believe I have ever made it a secret of the fact that I like songs best which express something I feel deeply in my heart. This is the case with the above song "Who Will Watch The Home Place". I grew up with my father's family playing music at every gathering. My Uncle Nick was my role model as an acoustic guitar player and singer and I saw my self as part of the next generation coming up in the ranks to take their places when I would be call upon to do so. This was the ideal that I held so dearly for most of my life. In January of 2012 Nick passed away and I came to finally accept the facts that I didn't want to see. I was the only heir to the family's musical lineage. None of my brothers took up the call seriously, and none of my nieces and nephews took to music either.

Now as I grow older I find that I am now the old guard and there is no new guard to take up my place. A way that was a life is drawing to a close and I fear it may never return, in my family at least. It's kind of like leaving an old familiar place, knowing that there will be nobody left behind to tend to it's necessities after you are gone.

This, more than anything, is why I record these tunes. It is my hope to leave some kind of legacy that might lead those who follow me might someday regain an interest in this lost art and see that there is a family tradition worth reviving and maintaining. Laurie Lewis' "Who Will Watch The Home Place" says all of this and I hope that you will enjoy this cover.
