ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The concert in this DVD represents a sampling of the music we love the best- traditional and historic songs. Our sources that we have "chased" over the last 25 years have been the recordings of rural music from the 1920s and '30s; sheet music from the Golden Era of song making- the late 19th and early 20th century; and songs shared with friends at music sessions across the country.

This music is a vital part of our cultural experience, not presented with intent to "preserve" the songs (think of butterflies pinned in a lepidopterist's collection) but with joy in passing them on to others. And although these songs can be appreciated within the context of their origins, there is a timeless quality to the stories told by them- and the stories behind them. Where did they come from and who has transmitted them. Why are they so moving to us even after the passage of years since they first were sung.

Speaking of stories, we are often asked by folks purchasing our recordings if the stories I tell during the introductions at our concerts are on the recording. They are not but many of them are on this DVD. Enjoy, sing, share and keep supporting this traditional music.
