The Lost Radio Rounders Present The American Songbag
The Lost Radio Rounders are Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck – one of upstate New York’s premiere Acoustic Americana duos, performing classic songs, ballads and singalongs from the Civil War to the Civil Rights era. On Sunday April 23, at 2 p.m., they will present the family-friendly program based on selections from Carl Sandburg’s 1927 folk song anthology The American Songbag. Says Tom: “The American Songbag is a wonderful mix of famous and not-so-famous tunes, some serious and some light hearted, but all working together to tell a distinctly American story. The program also includes a pair of Sandburg poems plus kid’s songs like Froggy Went a-Courtin’, cowboy songs like The Streets of Laredo, a campaign song for Abe Lincoln, seafaring songs like Sloop John B, love songs like Down In The Valley, spirituals like Down By The Riverside, work songs like The Midnight Special and much much more.”
