Mark Twain: Words & Music Cindy Lovell Executive Director, Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum
Mark Twain wrote, "Most of us contain Music & Truth, but most of us can't get it out." Join Cindy Lovell as she describes the trajectory of love and devotion that led to the creation of "Mark Twain: Words & Music" -- a tribute double-CD project comprised of song and spoken word. Using Clemens's language and carefully selected songs (some written especially for the project), two childhood friends set out to create a storied and musical timeline of Clemens's life. Those who lent their voices to this project include Jimmy Buffett, Garrison Keillor, Clint Eastwood, Emmylou Harris, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, and Sheryl Crow. The result is a sampler of narration, story, and Americana music offering a glimpse of Sam's life from comet to comet.
