ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Grant Livingston has been a favorite at acoustic music venues throughout Florida since the mid-eighties.

An offbeat sense of humor comes through the stories told in Livingston's songs. Many of Grant's songs reflect his love for his South Florida home. History, environment, social commentary, bringing Florida's past to light and making light of its present, Grant has earned the title of Miami's Historian-in-Song.

As a guitarist Livingston employs a style which is a unique mix of ragtime, country blues, and early swing. Grant's songs appeal to the child in grownups, and to the adult in kids. He often plays for schools, museums, and other children's programs.

"One Everglades" is Grant Livingston's fourth CD. It celebrates Florida with nine original songs including Water Matters, co-written with Gainesville jazz pianist Cathy DeWitt. Also featured are Jim Ballew's beautiful tune Roll On, Manatee and the 1930s classic Moon Over Miami. The final (bonus) track is a live recording from the Florida Folk Festival's Ann Thomas Gazebo stage where Grant has shared a Saturday afternoon performance with Tallahassee's Del Suggs for the past twenty years.

Some wonderful musicians from the family of Florida Song appear on this recording. Dan Peterson on bass, Stan Geberer on harmonica, Wayne Martin on fiddle, Cathy DeWitt on piano, and Tom Shed on banjo. Amy Carol Webb, Cathy DeWitt, Jolene Jones and Janet Rucker contribute harmony vocals. Bassist Dan Radcliffe and percussionist Sean Dibble appear on the song These Diamonds.
