Hatteras: if a Lighthouse Could Speak 1999

In 1997 while noodling on the guitar and searching for a haunting tuning Bett had previously heard, “If a Lighthouse Could Speak” melody came to her. At the time the plight of the lighthouse was a hot topic in North Carolina. It was feared to fall into the ocean. Bett was inspired to write an entire CD of songs about the history of the lighthouse, the relocation, and how people worldwide felt about it. She learned of the deep attachment that those who lived on the island had. This CD is tribute and appreciation of this famous beacon, the keepers of the light and their families. There are many styles of music, folk, pop, blues, and ‘new age’. Bett plays guitars, mandolin, piano, synthesizer, She is joined by Jon Gerler on electric bass, Bruce Ridge on upright bass, Jonathan Kramer on cello, Libo Nash on harmonica, Tom Mohbat on drums, and Ravi Shing on percussion.  Produced by Bett Padgett and Tom Mohbat
