more photos of heartsong, before, and later.... in no particular order

one thing we found out, after we went  'pro',  was that the number of male tenor vocalists who aren't insane is-- well, zero.  so we setlled for insane ones, when we could find one at all.  here's a picture of HEARTSONG with tenor # 2 [ or was it 3, it's a blur ]

hsng w walt s   personnel :  me, carol raynsford, alto, walt sayre,  tenor in the middle,  then terry landis, soprano, and david lord, baritone and rhythm guitar.   walt was good,  but addicted  to the trombone.  he didn't stay.

and before walt and david there was dean. [ dean stevens ]  he was 7 feet tall and goofy as...well, goofy.  nice tenor voice, not always quite in tune, and he didn't like to
 learn parts.   big drawback.....  had to let him go.     hsng w/dean  

Carol,  our alto, was a country girl, lived way out in the woods.  here she is in front of the woodshed.   c @ the woodpile

before Heartsong, there was the 'doowop' group, which include some member of the 'original' Heartsong.  i can't remember all their names.   confused?  don't worry.  just look at the picturess.  i'll sort them out later.
