Our tune "Quittin' Time at Essex Mine" honors the miners who worked so hard under dangerous circumstances. This tune honors the work done by folks trying to restore the waters spoiled from mining done a long time ago up Essex Hollow and at other places, too.

@Macaodha Thank you, Val.  It's different from our usual, I think.  Perhaps we don't really have a "usual", though.  :)

@Ariane @Steven-Berger @Strumelia @Gordon-Hardy @Dan @Dusty-Turtle Thanks again, friends.

Thank you for listening and commenting, folks!  We appreciate it.  

A long time ago, each of Mark's grandfathers worked up at Essex Hollow mining.  And the waters were spoiled, aquatic life was killed.  The doser was installed not many years ago in an attempt to mitigate some of the damage done by that long-ago mining.  As I understand it, there is still a part of the stream which will not support aquatic life at all.  The overall water quality of the West Branch of Sunday Creek is much improved, though.  

P.S.- Dusty, I am married to a Zamboni.  haha

Thank you Robin, there is so much restoration work that has been done to correct the abuses of industry to nature; but there is still so much more that needs to be done. I appreciate your tune that honors those folks that do this much needed restoration work and I know it comes from your heart and you and Mark play it so beautifully. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against industry; in fact I support industrial growth, here's hoping that industry continues to take the restoration of nature seriously.

You two work so well together.  It's like Mark's guitar smooths the ice surface for your dulcimer to go skating over.
