Programme Note

A country-inspired ballad with lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Louise Glück.

"They told me dirty footprints were the hallmark of a heel
They told me if I gave my love
That I would have to deal
With footprints baked into my heart
That never would come clean
Despite the soapsuds of my sorrow
And the brillo of my pain’’
