Here are stories from over one hundred people who travelled to the Musicport Festival in 2011; the audience, the back stage crew, the caterers, the volunteers and the musicians, including Hugh Masekela, Mary Coughlan, Iain Matthews, Mari Boine, Jude Abbott and World Music journeyman Andy Kershaw. A kaleidoscope of shifting patterns, the book captures the tales told over three days at one of Europe's best loved gatherings for World Music.
I grew up on the tales I heard around my Grandma Frank's kitchen, of life in Kentucky, as told by my mother, Nora, Aunt Lucille, Aunt Annie, Cousin Etta and Grandma. They told ghost stories about Indian princesses and big stallions, funny stories about the big ol' sway back white horse, Dollar. Scary stories, told by the kids as they walked to school, about the wolves following them on the edge of the woods. They fed them biscuits from their shortening can lunch buckets, thinking they were dogs. Stories of fireballs racing through the house at night. Little people, romance, magic, herbs, medicine men and women, witches and Indian kidnappings. I didn't want these stories to be forgotten so I wrote 'The Cumberland Witch' for my grandchildren. But there were so many stories that I couldn't fit into the novel that I began a sequel, 'Cumberland Music'. I named the heroine Music for the 105-year-od midwife that delivered my father in 1912, one week after the Titanic sank.
