 Artist Statement:

The words to the song are touching and are relevant in my life and in today’s times. Since living in the US, I have come to know someone from the Appalachian Mountains. I am blown away by the similarities of the two cultures and the spirit of the people. One thing that we have in common is resiliency. I have always loved bluegrass and challenged myself in the performance to bring the two cultures together.
