    If they made recordings in the 1860s, this is what they would have sound like, and Wayne Erbsen would have been a “pop” star of the period. His bitter-sweet baritone voice tuns even the most upbeat song melancholy. Erbsen plays and sings the songs that would have been instantly recognizable by Rebs and Yanks alike. Battlefield Ballads showcases both Wayne’s vocal and instrument talents.
