I want to thank just about everyone in my life, the journey that led to the creation of this album was touched by so many, and then the creation of it itself bolstered by an amazing body of musicians, inspirations, and friends.
Thank you to the amazing team of talent that contributed to the making of this album. To my endlessly supportive family, to the artists I get to play with who inspire me in their dedication to make what they want, to my teachers and mentors, my colleagues out here on the road, the Halifax Folklore Centre, Bearly’s House of Blues & Ribs, to Emma Jane, James Sanderson, Howling Giant, and the good Lord above.
This album is dedicated to the fond memory of my grandmother, Rita (Whalen) Kerr.
