2018 "Black Hills Comfort"  &  "The Forest Island:  Songs of the Black Hills" CD releases:  

"Black Hills Comfort"  is an album of "feel good" songs, story-songs about people, places and the beauty of the Black Hills.  These 15 songs (13 original)  include songs for all ages, and songs of our sacred Paha Sapa. 

"The Forest Island..." album contains  18 songs for children, families and educators.   Songs range from those about various birds, to elk and bison, the geology of the Black Hills, favorite places and people, to our water resources (Pactola Reservoir and the Missouri River).  A companion booklet includes song lyrics, stories, color illustrations (with B&W color sheets), lessons for grades 2-6, and graphic organizers for each song.  Lessons include several content areas along with educational standards for reading, writing, vocabulary, the arts, math, science and social studies.  The booklet will be available through, as well as two educational online websites (tba).

Linda will be available for special educational programs with the songs, lessons and projects for students.

** For those not in South Dakota, this album and its educational booklet will provide creative and educational additions to curriculum.

While in Chicago, I was in the studio recording a bunch of new songs about the beauty of the Black Hills, its land, water and habitat, and some important folks and events.  Among the songs will be children/family songs, and a song for Standing Rock.  All original (except for 1-2 songs), these songs will have Roots, Americana, Old Time,  Waltz, Blues and a traditional ballad feel.
