Tenting on the Old Camp Ground (2012)
In the great American War Between the States, 1861-1865, music played an important role at home & at the front. Millions sang & played winsome, powerful songs expressing the tragedies & triumphs of their times, penned by such notable writers as Stephen Foster, William Bradbury, & George Root, or taken from the rich folk tradition. Here are 44 of the finest tunes, presented by Timothy Seaman & a gathering of friends in vibrant instrumental arrangements on hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, flutes & whistles, guitar, Celtic harp, cello banjo, fiddle, piano, accordion, mandocello, Austrian tenor horn, harmonica, percussion, & more --- a fantasia from the distinctive experience of the era.
With guest artists Ann Robinson, Joe Healey, Peter Budnikas, Henry Smith, Howard Nilsen, Bill Gurley, Robin Jester, John Dooley, Ouida Archinal, Phil Skeens, Pat Sullivan, & more!
