Honeysuckle Winds

Written by Wayne Stegall

Performed by Annie & Mac

Today I went back again and smelled the honeysuckle winds
Out on the Little Vine Church Road
I sat beneath the tulip tree and relived old days of you and me.
I closed my eyes while the memories flowed

(chorus)
And the fragrance entwined with the honeysuckle vines
While the memories danced with the wind
How I wish that you were there, one more time, so we could share
The sweetness of the honeysuckle winds.

I saw two people side by side, a nervous groom, a blushing bride
Leave the church and stopped beneath the tulip tree
And then I raised your veil of lace
And gently kissed your smiling face
Our love was sweet, like the honeysuckle breeze

(repeat chorus)

Wayfarin’ Stranger

Performed by Micaela Aldridge, Connor Dugan and Mike Agranoff

I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger
traveling through, this world of woe.
yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger
In that bright land, to which I go.
I’m going home to see my father
I’m going home, no more to roam;
I’m just going over Jordan
I’m just going over home.

I know dark clouds will gather round me
I know the path is rough and steep;
But golden fields lie just before me
Where weary eyes no more shall weep.
I’m going home to see my father
I’m going home, no more to roam;
I’m just going over Jordan
I’m just going over home.

I want to wear that crown of glory,
When I get home to that good land;
I want to shout salvation’s story,
In concert with that blood-washed band,

I’m going home to see my Savior,
I’m going home, no more to roam;
I’m just going over Jordan,
I’m just going over home.

MICAELA ALDRIDGE (Vocals)

Micaela Aldridge is a High School sophomore who is interested in singing Classical music as well as a wide range of Folk, Jazz, and Contemporary. She occasionally sings in an Irish Folk group called “Dugan’s Hooligans”,  and has traveled with them throughout NJ in towns like Madison, Denville, and Morristown.  She has also attended many Music Festivals, including Brevard Music Center in Western North Carolina, where she will be returning this year to study Classical music and singing. She hopes to continue her Classical studies in college and become an Opera singer.

CONNOR DUGAN (Fiddle)

Educated in Classical, as well as Celtic and American folk music since the age of 6, Connor Dugan is a young violinist for the Baroque Orchestra of North Jersey, the NJ Concert Opera, and frequently accompanies the Harmonium Choral Society in their critically acclaimed concerts. But his talents aren’t limited to just one instrument.  Dugan also earned the first place championship in the Mid Atlantic Irish Fiddle competitions twice in a row — in addition to several other prestigious wins — and has been described by the New York Times as a “virtuosic fiddler.” He filmed this amazing rendition of Wayfarin’ Stranger expressly for HoSprings.

MIKE AGRANOFF (Guitar)

Mike Agranoff is an experienced folk musician who has performed in numerous music festivals and venues around the world. His prime instrument is the guitar, though he also plays the concertina, piano, banjo, and sings acapella. For over two decades, he has been the chairman of the Folk Project’s Minstrel Coffeehouse, one of the longest lived and most respected folk venues in the country. NYC’s Postscrypt Coffeehouse calls him “a word-smith and raconteur…that makes for a terrific live performance.”
