Product Notes

This is the first recording effort put forth by the duo of Charlie Lewis and Celia Hollander Lewis, even though they have appeared in many venues throughout Ohio and neighboring states for the last decade and one half. Charlie & Celia originally met and sang together as members of the Appalachian Green Parks Project in the 1970's. Green Parks was a project of the Ohio Valley Summer Theatre and Ohio University that became the official Bicentennial performance touring group for the State of Ohio. The two went their separate ways after college only to meet up again years later. In the intervening years, Charlie was a member of some notable music acts including The New Vinton County Frogwhompers Marching, Singing, Strumming and Plucking Society and A Touch of Grass. Celia appeared on cabaret club stages in New York City singing with two of her sisters, and played orchestral harp in venues across the country. 'In 1988 we re-connected and made our debut as a duo at O'hooley's, a local Athens establishment,' Charlie Lewis explains. Within a year, he and Celia Hollander were married, and within two years, they moved to Athens County. For a short time they performed as 'Alive & Kickin'.' 'We played numerous shows for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, touring many Ohio State Parks and appearing at the ODNR exhibit at the Ohio State Fair. There were shows for other outdoor venues as well as clubs and restaurants all over Ohio and neighboring states,' Lewis notes. In the mid-1990's they joined with Charlie's cousin, Bill Mullins, and performed as The Mighty Fine Re-Formulated All-Purpose Family Band. The couple left Athens County for Cleveland in 1996, performing there for 4 years, and then spent 20 months in Florida, continuing to share their music with residents in the Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Boca Raton areas. Celia offers that 'the children (as did we) wanted to come back home, to Athens, County, Ohio, so here we are.' 'People ask us for a CD at the conclusion of every show we play, so we figured it was time we gave them one,' Charlie laughs. 'It took us a while, but we got the message.'
