Travelin' to the Midwest
Why the Midwest? Why not? The program came about because of a lot of subtle
influences. Here are just a few: Seeing and hearing the mandolin and fiddle
wizardry of Peter Ostroushko at Old Songs in June ... a friend just
returned from an annual trip to see his mom in Illinois and brought back a
slew of newspapers for me; another friend from Iowa wrote recently;
another friend who is constantly talking about his Midwestern background;
still yet another old friend who once lived in Kansas and says that
everyone should live in the Midwest at least for a few years, if for
nothing else than to purge one's soul ... plus it's a presidential election
year and one of the most hotly contested regions is America's Heartland.
So, here's a program to offer a brief glimpse into the Heartland.
