Scraps of Quilting Music

This ode to the American quilting tradition celebrates the untold number of quilters who let their stitches tell their stories. It features songs, stories, poetry and lore derived from personal interviews with elder quilters and historical documents.

A heartwarming one-man show borne from a passion for all things timeless and rooted. These gifts of patience, quilts, touch everyone’s lives; whether they provide a little piece of home to a soldier in the thick of war; to providing warmth to a family in the thick of winter.

Featuring songs, stories, poetry and lore derived from personal interviews with elder quilters and historical documents. Songs performed on guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, harmonica and recorder. Themes in the show
