Original music, including blues, acoustic, rock and roll, and more, inspired
by a campaign to save an old bridge
“Though the bridge was closed for rehab and out of commission during the writing of
these songs, her presence permeated the hallways, penetrated the doorways, and filled
all hearts at the Holiday Motel. Fueled by elation, sleep deprivation, and the proximity
of respected peers, droves of driven souls churned out yet another year’s worth of
tributes, tall tales, and ragged anthems.”—pat mAcdonald
