Mike Scott & Friends and Award-Winning Musicians
Come Together to Salute
the 150 Year Anniversary of the Civil War
 
Album Releasing May 21, 2013
HOME SWEET HOME – INSTRUMENTAL TRIBUTE TO THE CIVIL WAR ERA OF SONGS
 
April 16, 2013 (Nashville, TN)—Rural Rhythm Records is saluting the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865) with an instrumental album titled Home Sweet Home, which contains 14 songs that were popular during the Civil War Era. 
 
Mike Scott (producer & performer) has
assembled an all star group of musicians to pay tribute to the popular
parlor songs, minstrel songs and marching songs from this era, which are
now known as traditional standards.  Joining Scott on this album are
awarding winning players Adam Steffey, Rob Ickes, Bryan Sutton, Aubrey Haynie, Tim Stafford, Mike Compton, Ben Isaacs, Jeff Taylor and Scott Miller.
 
“I am so excited about this Civil War Era
project.  My own banjo heritage traces back to both of my
grandfathers.  Also, my great grandmother “Verdie” on my dad’s side
played banjo and was born during the 1860’s Civil War period.  I never
had the opportunity to meet any of them, but I am proud to carry on the
banjo legacy in our family”, says Mike Scott.
 
The songs on Home Sweet Home
could be heard during the 1860’s in America’s major cities, small
towns, rural areas and soldier encampments during the Civil War.  150
Years later, these American musical treasures can be enjoyed again on
this special collection.  These songs should not be lost and forgotten,
but passed down to future generations as a part of America’s musical
heritage.
 
Mike Scott says, “I
dedicate this project to those who broke through the pages of our
nation’s history and paved the way for a better America.  I hope these
tunes will touch you and give you a reminder of a period of time
captivated as part of our nation’s journey to unity and freedom.  May it
bring you joy, put a smile on your face and put some ‘giddy-up’ in your
step”!
