Most of our friends out there remember Carolyn's good friend Marty Lane who passed away in 2001.  Marty along with Charlotte Wallace and Carolyn Bristow Peterson formed a folk music group in the 90's called "Small Town Folks" who traveled the festival circuit. As a tribute to Marty, and with the permission of her daughter Nancy Lane Feldner, we are compiling a CD of many of Marty's live performance recordings ( Title: Handful of Songs, Vol I. ) for distribution next February at Dulcimer Doins . Nancy has also made part of Marty's musical instrument collection and music memorabilia available to the community at very reasonable prices as she downsizes storage space of her mom's collection looking forward to retirement.  If you are interested in any of these items, they are listed on this page.  Contact Carolyn if you are interested in any of the items.

Click here for a sampling of the tunes to be included in the "Hand Full of Songs" CD.  Check back again as we go through Marty's vast selection of cassettes in the lost archives and select as many that will fit on that first CD.
