ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stan and Canadian fiddler team up to play songs and tunes of Lake Champlain, in upstate New York. "Champ," the Lake Champlain Monster, is a favorite. Songs of battles and shipwrecks, ice fishing and ice rescues, marching songs and rum running, all are grist for the mill, and all are enjoyable. Victor's fancy fiddling and Stan's mellow voice add to the pleasure of this CD.
"Stan Ransom's CD is very rewarding, offering rich history and warm sounds. Some of the songs are simply loads of fun. The Lake's place in history has long been secured, and Ransom captures it in his music. The music is helped by his choice of instruments; not the least prominent among them is Ransom's warm, inviting voice. It is well worth the effort."--Greg Claus, "Press Republican."
