Host Will Healy and co-host David Henly celebrated the 3rd anniversary of The Long Way Home tonight at KYMN’s studios. Some of Healy’s former colleagues from Over and Back stopped by for an in-studio performance: Stephen Kampa, harmonica; Craig Wasner, keyboard; Michael Hildebrandt, fiddle. Here’s a one-minute video clip:
Mark Witt (AKA ‘Mooch’) stopped by my morning office at GBM a couple months ago with a CD in hand. (Mark is one-half of the Witt Bros. Service where I’ve had my cars repaired since I moved to Northfield in 1974.)
The CD is called Venture and it’s written, produced and sung by his sister, Lori Witt (AKA Lori Macrae). I got them to pose for a photo at the station on one of the first sunny days of spring.
Other Northfielders who had a hand in the CD:
Mark Witt: Vocals, assistant producer
Craig Wasner: Music arranger, keyboard, vocals, guitar
Tom Teorey: Harmonica, guitar
Logan Macrae: Music enthusiast
Corey Pulju: Photography, CD design (photo above of Lori in the car was taken by Corey)
Mark’s vocals are featured in one of the songs, Middle Age. Here’s a clip of the last 45 seconds of the song:
Update 06/10: Lori has a page on TuneCore which has a link to iTunes where the entire album can be purchased for $7.92 or individual songs for $.99. I’ve added a CD image above that’s linked to that page, too.
