Our dear friend and neighbor, Patrick Sky, recently passed, after a long illness. Many of you may know of him from his days in the 1960's folk music scene in New York City, but he was also an accomplished and respected Irish piper. He and his wife Cathy, on fiddle, recorded this fine CD a few years ago. loy and I have been listening to it recently and we love the the relaxed, comfortable beauty of their playing.

Help remember Patrick and enjoy some beautiful, evocative traditional Irish music. Just click on the image below and you can read more about them and order a copy.

River In Time

Traditional Songs and Fiddle Tunes from the Toe River Valley


The Toe River Valley of western North Carolina has a rich heritage of traditional southern Appalachian music, yet it is little known to the wider world. Bruce Greene lives on the South Toe River in Yancey County, where he has been preserving and playing the music of friends and neighbors for nearly forty years. Here he sings and plays twenty-four songs and tunes he learned from elder musicians throughout the region, most of whom were born in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
