We are sad to inform folk music lovers that Caroline Paton of Folk-Legacy Records has passed away. You can read her obituary here.
It has come to our attention that several musicians wanting to record songs composed by Gordon Bok have received mechanical licenses from agencies not associated with Timberhead Music LLC, the sole agency representing him. All of Gordon’s songs are copyrighted and registered with Timberhead Music and only Timberhead Music can legally license recordings of them. Please be advised that any other agency claiming to have the authority to issue mechanical licenses does not in fact have that authority. All permission requests need to be directed to Timberhead in order to be legal. We all want to do the right thing, so please respect copyright procedures.

Gordon Bok and Bob Zentz - Together Again For the First Time
"In late March 1979, Gordon and I were on an odyssey of exploration, friendship, teaching, and learning. We tried to create a blueprint of the mystical “business” called “music”, but in reality, you can’t distill what we do down to a formula… it’s more like alchemy of old, lost to time but alive in our imagining.
Available now at Timberhead Music.
This is from my friend Ulla SKšld from Vara, Sweden:
I was interviewed recently about my stroke for the Brain Injury Association of Maine newsletter. They have collected stories from Maine survivors. I am proud to be included among these remarkable stories of will, perseverance and hope as we have all moved on and gone on to re-invent ourselves as we learn there is life after stroke. My story is #18 in the list but they are continually adding more stories.
