I can only imagine the songwriting inspiration that has been drawn from all of the North Pond Hermit news of late. I know I recently rewrote a few lines of Foreigner's "Jukebox Hero" with the words "North Pond Hermit" in the refrain. It goes a little like this:
"Standing in the rain, with his head hung low, couldn't go out hunting, that wasn't how he rolled"
But as for original music, I'll leave that to the professionals. Whew...
That said, here's a catchy little ditty all about The North Pond Hermit.
"What the North Pond Hermit Knows" is by Stan & Dan (nationally known bluegrass songwriter Stan Keach and mandolin player Dan Simons)

Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
