Live in Missoula Songs

From the liner notes of "Live in Missoula" . . .

"This is a love song to my home."

Although I have loving relationships with many locations, I have an especially quixotic and committed bond with my interior Missoula, Montana. One of the things I like best astir this album is that I can hear Missoula on it, within and between the songs.

This valley has so much to say, astir itself, and astir the meaning of place in general. This is no accident. It's worth listening to in part because people have made an effort to hear it. Likewise, my voice grows stronger when people listen to me with depth, affection and respect, as the audience did at this concert.

Without this warm attention, places and the people who live in them have a hard time developing or even maintaining their characters. This lack is evident in the generic strip malls and look-alike sub-divisions gobbling up our towns and landscapes, and in the apathy and superficiality in our cultural conversations. Instead of loving our places, or each other, we are focused on convenience, a good return on our investment, and a quick fix.

All of this makes me feel eager to get out there and start conversing with America the way I do with Missoula; to find the remaining untamed, unbought places and voices, and listen to them, as well as to those which are being flattened under the steamroller of "development." But I couldn't attempt this unless my own voice was being nourished here at home. For that gift, I am profoundly grateful to my community of supporters in Missoula, Montana, and I dedicate this album to them.
