about

CD available: neilwoodward.com

Old Timers tells tales of immigrants’ hopes and the old home place, Great Lakes mariners and lumbermen, weary soldiers and anxious families at home, railroad bosses and hobos, cowboys and farmers, fiddlers and dancers advancing and military forces in retreat.

Featured instruments include banjo. fiddle, tin whistle, mountain dulcimer, Autoharp, harmonica, National steel guitar and voice.

We introduce our children to the cultural world surrounding us by exposure to and immersion in our stories and songs. Countless generations of earth dwellers have passed along their cultural DNA through the medium of music. This process naturally begins close to home, as we include our children in singing, dancing and other social art forms with family, neighbors and friends. The ever-widening circle proceeds outward from what is most familiar, and extends to people and places that seem at first distant and exotic. Notwithstanding language, cultural, geographical and historical diversity, immersion in Humanities studies always reveals more about the remarkable similarities than the differences in humans around the world and throughout time.
