an evening of songs and stories with Heartwood Legend

Recorded live by Dr. Ted Ledford, October 30,2001 at the Chalet in Little Switzerland, NC, this 100 minute video captures the final performance of a rare and delightful combination of musicians. Heartwood Legend, featuring Terry McKinney, guitar; M. King Goslin, guitar; Johanna Logan Cooper, acoustic bass; and Jo Northup, hammered dulcimer and flute, is an amazing and unexpected adventure . . . blending the best in natural musicianship and diverse musical traditions to create These Are My Mountains.

Presented weekly at The Orchard at Altapass during the summer of 2001, These Are My Mountains is a memorable encounter with local history, honoring the beautiful mountains God gave us and the people who have called them home . . . a tribute to our fascinating past and hopeful future . . . captivatingly portrayed in engaging true stories and exciting traditional and original music by artists who live here and continue to be inspired by our mountains.

While Terry, King, Johanna and Jo no longer appear together as Heartwood Legend, they each have continued to pursue musical endeavors in their own traditions. Terry is a regular entertainer at The Orchard at Altapass during the summer season and also performs with Clear Creek (bluegrass) and his family band. King began Gracious Light Music in 2003. Johanna enjoys playing the Bass and sharing her original music at the Piano.  Jo continues to perform regularly for special events at Biltmore Estate and recently produced her 3rd compilation album there, Biltmore Estate Christmas Vol. II. Together for a season, they created something magical. It is available now in this one-of a-kind video for your pleasure.
