Sleeve Notes

The cities of ancient Greece were built in such a way that all the gates opened onto roads which led to the market place, the living heart of the city. So is it with music. What matter which gate you take so long as you reach the heart. My friend Bert Meijer said that, and this is a collection of songs which I have written or collected over the years which have taken me through different "gates". These songs have been influenced, and inspired, by a variety of people and events, from my grandparents with their "auld Scots tongue" to the contemporary singer songwriters on both sides of the Atlantic, from my childhood memories to modern day situations. Hopefully they'll make it to the "city centre". I would like to thank Bernard for making this possible. Jan for the sounds, Akke for meals that defy superlatives, Harmke, my wife, for the patience, love and understanding, the city of Groningen for adopting me and, finally, four of the finest musicians I have ever worked with, thank you all for your wonderful skills.
