Kathy's Songs

History

Kathy wrote these songs between the time she was in high school and some years later when she worked in Annapolis as youth director at David's parent's church. She wrote the song Welcome Home while in Annapolis as a memorial for her grandmother. After that she returned to South Carolina and what had been her job as an elementary school teacher, and got married. Welcome Home remains her most recent song.

Kathy refers to her songs as "... the rantings of a Jesus-loving crazy teen!"


None of Kathy's music was written down. It all existed in her head. One year her cousin Donna, had Kathy play all her songs and record them on a cassette. Donna had those recordings transcribed as written music. Those hand transcribed sheets of music are the starting point for making this recording.

Plans

During David’s prior involvement recording the album, Hymns and Songs for Living, he made contacts with a variety of folks that work in various phases of music. It therefore is hoped making this album of Kathy’s Songs will be more straightforward to complete than was the Hymns and Songs for Living.

David initiated outreach conversations exploring possibilities for creating a small recording containing all of Kathy's Songs.
