From the recording Hummingbird ~ and other nearly true stories ~
♪ Preacher Mike This song is about our bluegrass gospel missionary friends, Mike and Mary Robinson. They travel up and down the east coast from Maine to Florida leading gospel sings at various bluegrass festivals and church services. Wonderful couple from MA that we've known for years. Mary went through a health crisis a few years ago, inspiring Barbara to write this song about them. One word of caution: turns out there are a couple of other Preacher Mikes, and one of them is a reggae song that you might want to avoid (language, content)! Who knew? Our own Preacher Mike and Mary are ones you'll want to seek out!
