Special Thanks: It must be said that a project like this could not exist with the help and encouragement of special friends: Michael Park, Mary Sanderson, Greg and Leanne Yarrow who have patiently listened and offered suggestions. My children for putting up with a musician dad. Mary Anderson for always being there, Catherine Marrion for giving me the precisous gift of Tony’s story and his mandolin, and the many other friends and supporters who have been asking me to do this recording
