CD Reviews

Captures Early America
Stone Bridge Farm | Griswold, CT | 10/24/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This music just transports you back in time to colonial days when life was less hectic but much more difficult than today. It's the type of music that is played in Sturbridge Village in Mass. which is a replica of an early American village. Just beautiful!!"
