Album Notes
The power of "home" lay at the heart of the Civil War and helps explain the various ways people responded to the conflict. For every stereotype there were many exceptions, and these songs reflect the diversity of Americans of all races, sexes, and walks of life as they struggled through a dark but inspiring time. As all fine art does, this music transcends its time and place to become eternal. The words and melodies reach straight from the distant past into our hearts and souls, inspiring us to laugh and cry as they did when they were first created.

These classics are presented simply and elegantly, preserving their essence. Pure vocals and harmonies combine with tasteful guitar and sweet dulcimer, plus masterful harmonica, banjo, bones, and Irish drum. The jaw-harp, a favorite folk instrument for centuries, adds a playful lilt. Beauty, energy, and passionate conviction result in a recording that honors the past and will stand the test of time.
