Brand new for the holiday season 2010, this two-disc compilation features 26 Maine artists whose music reflects their deep and abiding love of the State of Maine. Some are from Maine, some are From Away. All have carried that love of Maine into their music and through their careers.
Participating artists include Rob Bryan, Marshall Dodge, Rudy Vallee, Dan Fogelberg, Devonsquare, Dick Curless, Cindy Bullens, Lenny Breau, Brad Terry, Schooner Fare, Gordon Bok, Noel Paul Stookey, Malinda Liberty, Aztec Two Step, Jonathan Edwards, Johnny Hiland, Jud Strunk, Con Fullam, Don Roy, Larry John McNally, Don McLean, Jude Johnstone, Bill Chinnock, Joan Kennedy, David Mallett, Rustic Overtones, and Paul Sullivan . Between them these artists account for more than 200 million records sold, 25 Grammy Awards, and 50 top ten hits throughout the world. A booklet included with the CD set is filled with stories of the artists' backgrounds, their musical histories, and their connection to Maine.
These accomplished recording artists are joining hands to help the Maine Credit Union League's Ending Hunger Campaign. The sale of each CD set will help fund the League's work with food assistance programs throughout Maine. This year, more than ever, that assistance is vital to the wellbeing of thousands of Maine families.
This is sure to be a most welcome gift for anyone who loves music and loves Maine. That's probably about everyone on your gift list.
