An American Salute features a collection of songs that are purely Americana. Played the way they might have sounded back then. While you may not know all their names, you will know many of the melodies. These songs reflect the very Heritage of America itself, New Orleans Dixieland, John Philip Sousa, Steven Foster, The Battle Hymn Of The Republic, and that Honky-tonk sound of the old wild west, riverboats, and roaring 20's, its all here.
