THIS RECORDING is inspired by my Italian
upbringing, the love and passion of life,
family and the music that was shared in my
grandpa’s home in Erie, Pennsylvania USA
where he immigrated
from Montenero Val Cocchiara, Molise
(Isernia) Italy in 1901.
MY MUSICAL PATH and passion for the arts
was steered by this wonderful upbringing.
My father, grandpa and I would play the
selections contained on this album many
a night in my grandpa’s kitchen, with
family gathered all around.
