ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"My Long Island Home" shows that there is a body of traditional music which has been overlooked. Stan researched the songs of whalers, minstrels, clam diggers, "Bonakers," and long time setlers. Together with the companion CD, "I Love Long Island," you will enjoy Long Island's great music, from early times to the present. Stan's mellow baritone joins with his expert playing of the guitar, hammered dulcimer, mandolin, autoharp and banjo to bring you fine music and a taste of old style traditional music from every part of Long Island. Highly recommended for new settlers to the Island and those who like their history in a very palatable form.
"These recordings are the culmination of an extensive labor of love that spans 30 years of research and legwork. Ransom has arranged the music for hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, banjo and autoharp, and added a couple of his own compostions and settings of old ballads to which the tunes had been lost. He has assembled and played a formidable collection of the music of Long Island in all its varied forms. It will be enjoyed by New Yorkers and others in search of great old music."--"Sing Out"
