Wesley Foundation Songbook

In the late 1970s Ray Curry and I were part of team that provided songleading for Sunday Celebration services at the Wesley Foundation on the campus of Georgia Tech. The campus minister, Bill Landiss, typed and printed various folk songs that students had suggested over the years. The songs were mostly folk from artists such as James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, Bob Dylan, etc.

Dan Isbell was about to graduate and so he helped to mentor Ray, myself and pianist Frank Stembridge. Learning these songs and leading the singing was a formative part of my music education. Almost 40 years later Ray and I convened to record some of our favorites.
