    Southern Soldier Boy” would have made my great, great granddaddy, Capt. Knox, CSA, proud!

  2. Alan Whisman

    The best recordings of traditional music I’ve found. The arrangements and sound quality are very good. The fiddle, banjo and harmonica give a very authentic Civil War era sound

  3. Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine

    A delightfully educational collection…Wayne Erbsen is to be congratulated for giving the listening public and the student of American music such a rich musical experience.
