Patchwork Quilt

by Roses On the Prairie

A patchwork of traditional, celtic, cover and original music in the folk genre. Lucy's soaring soprano melds with Butch's baritone voice in the manner of Gordon Lightfoot as Butch's 12 string guitar intertwines with Dirk's awesome keyboard notes.

Album Notes
In our music you will find the traditional sound of the mountain dulcimer (played by Lucy Krause) as well as the 12 string guitar played by Butch Krause and the keyboard fingerings of Dirk Dalton (who sometimes plays guitar). Some of the music is 500 or 600 years old that we learned to play for a renaissance fair with another group. The original story songs of Butch Krause weave their way through the traditional and contemporary folk songs we've selected with18 tracks of music in 80 minutes. Lucy's soaring soprano voice melds with Butch's baritone voice in an ear pleasing experience. As we were performing in a local coffee shop a new patron came in, ordered her coffee and set down to hear us. At the end of our song, she says "I expect this quality of music in New York City. I did not expect to hear this in a little coffee shop in Lincoln NE."
We are late bloomers, a long way from our teen dreams of being rock stars. But a late bloom can be oh so much sweeter as you try to hold onto the summer that is fading into autumn. Give us a listen and I'm sure you'll agree.
Zephrus moves cross the plains of the prairie, gathering the sounds of life as it glides.
Catching the trill of the meadowlark’s warble declaring its home far and wide .
Plucking the cry of the hawk from the air and the song of the redbird on wing through the sky.
Moving the branches of sentinel evergreens guarding the graves of those who have died.
Over the small towns dotting the prairie absorbing the stories where plain folk reside.
Past cities of light with big city noises, under the stars of the big prairie sky.
Sometimes tangling in the brambles of roses, simple wild roses of the road side.
Leaving behind songs of the prairie, tangled dreams of folk fallen from zephyrs slow glide.

Butch Krause
