My father wrote many of his most famous songs over seventy years ago, and yet the interest in his music is greater than ever. Music was his consuming interest, and he considered himself a guy who was a "craftsman"; a tunesmith, who loved working to find the melody that he felt fit one of the many song ideas that were forever buzzing around in his head.
With this web-site, we want to share information about Hoagy Carmichael, and keep you informed of coming events.
In addition, we hope that our social media pages will become a place where musicians from all over the world will connect, share ideas and create music together. My father would have enjoyed that immensely.
Our thanks for your continued interest in my father's songs. It was the music that made him tick, and I am sure that he would be a happy fellow if he could see this web-site, and know that people still enjoyed his work.
