AUDIO DEMO – American Lifestyles

Photo by Jim Rogers

Rural life and historical stories are often our main focus.  Songs from other eras or faraway lands are included, consistent with our desire to connect audiences to people of another time or place when we can connect with shared experiences or emotions.

Some American Lifestyle songs are also in our “POTPOURRI” VIDEO DEMO – click HERE.  (For an index to all VIDEO pages – click HERE.)
