I gather it will soon be for sale via Amazon and at CDBaby, the independent music distributor.

Also, some of my other Lake Champlain work is coming out from a book on the art of Lake Champlain from a publisher in Vermont. I'm not sure what the pub date is.

Here is Mary Koth Lutton's bio from her website:

In 2000, I retired from 40 years of teaching vocal music in public schools. It wasn’t until the fall of 2005 that I decided it was time to get back to doing something else I really loved. So I returned to performing when I joined a New Jersey group called the Acoustic Musicians Guild.

In December of 2005, I met a wonderful guitar teacher, composer, and performer. Patrick Karwan encouraged me to fulfill a four-decade dream of doing a solo album. Back in the “That Was Then” era of the sixties, I sang with a folk trio called The All Night Singers. We recorded on the Reprise label, and played East Coast clubs. But when 2006 arrived – the “This Is Now,” my goal was to sing classic ballads, some of the many songs that Patrick wrote, and covers of songwriters I have long admired.
