Class of '65 Concert - Part 1

(Episode 1)
Listen to the podcast audio

In MORE SONGS AND STORIES FROM HOME Mark Pearson shares a belief that we are all in this together, more alike than different, capable of finding common ground in the stories we share and the songs we sing together. 

In this first series of Podcasts, CLASS OF 65, Pearson returns to the high school auditorium where 60 years earlier he performed for the first time. Six decades later a musical reunion filled with songs and stories for and about his classmates, celebrating where it began and the roads traveled from there to now.

In this Episode the songs talk about returning to significant places with important people, adding new memories to unforgettable old ones.

On my website,, you can find an accompanying blogpost talking about a song from the Podcast. This time it's "Heartwood." When he sees life "going out in circles like the growth rings on a tree," his classmates are in the center of that circle, part of the heartwood.

The album, Class of 65, is available for streaming.
