Thread Name: Kendall's new book
Subject: RE: cover of Kendall's new book
"For decades, Kendall Morse was a multitalented entertainment force. Born and
raised in Machias, the grandnephew of a
renowned local storyteller, Kendall began
telling stories professionally in the early
1970s. He eventually hosted a show
on Maine Public Television called In the
Kitchen, wrote a book by the same name
and released a popular album called
Seagulls and Summer People. Kendall
was also a successful folksinger. Three
times he was voted Folksinger of the Year
by the Maine Country Music Association,
was inducted into the Maine Country
Music Hall of Fame in 1995, and was
nominated for a Grammy in 2009 for his
role in the double CD, Singing through
the Hard Times, a tribute to Utah Phillips.
Father Fell Down the Well is a wonderful
collection of traditional Downeast stories
collected and performed by Kendall during a career of performing from across
Maine, and America."

Hear, hear!! Way to go, Skipper!
