GEORGE M. COHAN (1878-1942) grew up on the road in a vaudeville family. After moving to New York in his teens, he and his musicals became hits on Broadway. You’re a Grand Old Flag was the first song in a musical to sell over one million copies of sheet music.

WARREN KIMBLE is one of America’s most successful folk artists. Originally an elementary art teacher in New Jersey, he was drawn to the serenity of Vermont, where he lives and works today. His favorite medium is paint on distressed wood—antique doors, breadboards, or tabletops that he and his wife travel widely to find. He and his wife, Lorraine, have 3 children and many grandchildren.
