PS So you really don't want to go about surfing the net looking up all this stuff, right? OK, here's the low-down, short and simple.

Going Up the Missouri: Songs & Dance Tunes from Old Fort Osage is an anthology of folk songs, fiddle tunes and pop songs all dating from before 1820. If you go to rendezvous, if you are involved in living history, you'll like this record. Why? Because I recorded it using instruments common to the era, such as the wire strung 18th century Guittar. Want to know more about what that instrument sounds like? Maybe you'd enjoy listening to the CD.
