Description:

“I share this bit of truth in hopes that miracles will happen.” —Michael Cotter


The Old Gravel Road is a fascinating new recording that combines Jeanne Cotter’s music with the rich, rustic storytelling of her uncle, Michael Cotter. Throughout history stories have been an important part of every culture, nation, and race, and good storytellers are revered. Michael Cotter is a professional storyteller. His wit, wisdom, and whimsy weave vivid pictures of a life filled with “experiences from a unique time and place” that teach us of our commonalities and remind us that whether beggar, butcher, or banker, politician, pauper, or priest—we all walk the same road together and that we are called to reach out and build bonds with our fellow travelers.


Between each recounting is a song from Jeanne’s collection Tenderhearted. The fervor with which Michael tells each tale coupled with the poignancy of Jeanne’s music will captivate, stir, and inspire your soul.
