Synopsis

Product Description
Little House on the Prairie, the autobiographical book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder,
holds in its pages a comprehensive review of 19th-century American folk music via the
very real character of Charles 'Pa' Ingalls (1836-1902), a highly acclaimed fiddler
of the time and Laura's own non-fictional father. For the first time, in January 2012,
a concert based on this music was performed before a live audience at the Loveless
Barn just outside of Nashville, TN for broadcast by the PBS television network.
The CD release includes 16 tracks from the live performance.


An effort co-produced by Dean Butler ('Almanzo' on the Little House on the Prairie TV
show) and esteemed musicologist Dale Cockrell (President of Pa's Fiddle Recordings),
PA'S FIDDLE: THE MUSIC OF AMERICA features performances from some of the
finest of today's acoustic musicians, enlisting the talents of award-winning musician
and musical director Randy Scruggs and all-star 'Pa's Fiddle Band' with Matt
Combs (fiddle), Dennis Crouch (upright bass), Chad Cromwell (drums), Hoot Hester
(mandolin) and Shad Cobb (banjo), along with featured artists Randy Travis, Rodney
Atkins, Ronnie Milsap, Ashton Shepherd, The Roys, Natalie Grant and Committed
(NBC Sing Off Champions). Says Dean Butler of the production, 'Dale Cockrell loves
traditional American music and I love the stories of American pioneer life written by
Laura Ingalls Wilder. Having this opportunity to share the music Laura recalled in her
unforgettable novels is nothing less than a dream come true.
