Strings Attached project’s third collection of intergenerational recordings utilizing the developing talents of its students and seasoned local musicians. The project finds its home in American roots music genres, this time with a focus on cowboy and frontier American music.
Inspired by and covering the songs of Stephen Foster, Bob Wills, Jimmie Rodgers, writings of John A. Lomax and Hollywood’s cowboy craze of the “Golden Era.” We hope you enjoy it – Happy Trails!
The Strings Attached project connects youth, ages 5 to 17, with music education using American roots music. We learn to play instruments such as guitar, ukulele, dobro, banjitar and mandolin. If you would like to learn more about the project, please click on the file symbol above and to the left.
