They Live On ... in Word and Song pays tribute to the life cycle in this moving and memorable live performance. Singer-songwriter Michael Jerling lends his poignant lyrics and melodies to author Patricia A. Nugent's memoir They Live On: Saying Goodbye to Mom and Dad.

In a collaborative performance of music and readings, these two artists give voice to life, love, and loss as it relates to our shared human experience.

The debut live performance was held at Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs on November 12, 2023.

*Saratoga Arts made this program possible through the Community Arts Regrant Program, funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

The album is available on CD, and digitally as both hi-res MP3s and lossless FLACs. See more at my Fool's Hill Music online store.
