My Conesus Cabin Home




My Conesus Cabin Home
1999




These are songs I have come across from various sources. Some are from standard American folk repertoire. Some from old Country 78 rpm records. A few are more comtemporary. And there are a couple songs of my own writing. One thing to note is the song Someday Street. A very special man named Sammy K. (RIP) wrote the words. Sammy was the first person to bring a twelve-step program to a state penitentiary. It was at Attica where my brother John and I met him and were brought to play for the inmates several years ago. These songs have a certain simplicity and charm that drew me in. I hope they do the same for you. I give thanks to my brother John for encouraging me to release this project. Thank you for listening and may God bless you.

Thanks to my family: Bill Hogan, Sue and Jim Meagher, Tom and Lynne Marie Kinsella, Jim and Mary Dady, John and Carol Dady, Erin, Brendan, Connor, Clare, Mara, Katie and Matt and Sean, Patrick, Jimmy, TJ, Pete, Caitlin, Mick Sarubbi, Jim McAvaney, Phil Enders, Mark Hare, Jim Lowenguth, the people in the trenches at Strong Cardio-Vascular unit who saved my life, the fine folks at St. Mary's Brain Trauma Unit who helped me get back to a semblance of reality.

Thanks to you for all your prayers, cards and well wishes. Your love most certainly brought me back from the other side. With Love and gratitude...
