Product Notes

There's some truth to the image of traditional Mainers as self-reliant, neighborly, and clever at making things work. They have a good dollop of boneheaded stubbornness, too. Odd folks, welcome in rural Maine, give rise to good stories and affirm the independence we value. Occasionally, they remind us of some hard realities. This album is a tribute to such uncommon folks. Here are a few notes about the tracks: Wimble Betty A strong-willed pioneer woman outsmarts a wily peddler (adapted from C.A. Stephens' 1934 memoir, My Folks in Maine). The Man Who Proved the Earth Was Flat The village of East Otisfield, Maine, still celebrates this self-proclaimed astronomer - though not for his scientific acumen. Lion Makers A genius from northern Maine unleashed bloody horrors on the world. Feet First An overconfident farmer is outdone by a resourceful and determined pig. Eccentricity The oddest member of my family turns out to have a tragic secret.
