> in August 2009.
> His latest CD is "Songs for Jules and Bruce," with songs dedicated to
> and inspired by both Julius Margolin and Bruce "Utah" Phillips. He
> also produced the "Until You Come Home" CD, which features such folk
> legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Holly Near, Magpie, John Gorka
> and more singing about the experiences of war and of returning home.
> Inspired by the book "Voices of Vets," George created this CD to help
> welcome home our returning service members and recognize the
> sacrifices they and their families have made for our country.
