Program Notes

America's rivers have long been a source of life, providing water to nourish the settlers and routes for exploration and commerce. These rivers have inspired many songs that tell tales of those who prospered from the shores. River Songs of the South draws from America's rich heritage of slave, folk and minstrel songs that capture the spirit of the southern region and paint a picture of a much simpler way of life.

The melodies included at Ole Tar River; On the Banks of the Old Pee Dee; The Rose of Alabama: Way Down in Cairo; Old Folks at Home; Roll Out! and Heave Dat Cotton.
