I wrote this song in memory of my Great Great Grandfather Joseph W. Madison who fought with the 1st Rhode Island Volunteers during the Civil War. He left his wife Sarah behind in California and came back East to enlist. He was wounded at Shiloh and returned to California only to find his wife and child had died from sickness. Joseph is the guy sitting in a chair holding a sword in the pictures.
My musical career spans more than 40 years; from the folk music venues of Boston, New York City and Montreal during the 1960’s, to the ski resorts and honky tonks of Northern New England from the 1970’s to the 1990’s.
In 1973, I released my first album called Sunday Mornin” Hayride. That album has been re-released by Riverman Records and Yoga Records and was voted in the top ten retro re-issues for 2009 by the Acid Archives.
In 1974, I formed Them Fargo Brothers which became New England’s Premier Country Rock Band and I toured with the band until 1990.
I am currently writing and recording in my studio and marketing my CD’s through my web site and have downloads available across the web. I am also a featured artist on IMRadio.com
