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.  The song “Ashokan Farewell”, written by Jay
Ungar, and heard throughout the Ken Burns Civil War TV series was
included in the collection due to its familiarity to this period in time
based on the TV series popularity. 
150 years later, these 13 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”!
Mike Scott is seen by millions of TV viewers each week during prime-time on RFD-TV, (72 million households), performing with Ronnie Reno & Reno Tradition on the RENO’S OLD TIME MUSIC SHOW.  He also is the host of the new music TV series BEHIND THE DREAMTM currently airing on BlueHighways TV.
