Notes: Composed in 2021 by David Kaynor on an eye gaze computer using EasyABC while dealing with ALS.  He says, “This is my first composition in over a year, called Sustainers.  I hope it’s fun to play, easy on the ears, and works as a musical tribute to the Care Team:   Rebecca Hollingsworth, Will Quale, Asa DeRoode, and Rebecca Weiss.  They, along with many others,  have sustained me through the heartbreaking losses brought about by ALS.  With her fiddle skills,  straight-ahead musicality, and patience,  Rebecca Weiss has been a voice for the music which seems to endure within me.  This has been strongly sustaining in and of itself.”
