ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 1996 Utah State Centennial and the 1997 Sesquicentennial of the settling of Utah forced the band to examine its roots and reinvent a pioneer repertoire, leading to the Utah: Songs of Statehood CD and a companion video produced by public television station KUED. When the Sesquicentennial wagon train reached the Utah border after many months on the trail, the DSB performed with the Utah Symphony to celebrate the event. I'll never forget chatting with one of the wagoneers while around the vast field full of wagons and handcarts his yoked team of oxen grazed like Siamese twins.
Leonard Coulson - banjoist

Well recorded, beautiful music.
If you were a fan of Land Of Milk and Honey--you will love this CD. Many beautiful and unusual pieces of old time music.
