CD & DVD Review - The Music of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie "Pa's Fiddle"

The Little House On The Prairie books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and the television series starring Michael Landon, are a multi-generational phenomena that have, and will continue to, affect American culture and history in the decades to come. In my own household, our children were raised on a steady diet of the books and the TV show, and their Grand Mother, a Depression era child, loved the show and books as much as the kids did.

There was a…

Kitty Wells Dresses

Laura Cantrell

Spit & Polish SPIT039          


The Princess of Alt pays homage to the Queen of Country Music.

       This album is already kicking up a stink in the UK as the Paramilitary Wing of the Country Musicologists think its sacrilege that a young upstart from the Alt-Country field should dare cover these tracks and Laura Cantrell’s…

There's nothing that makes me happier than a new Laura Veirs...and you can preview two tracks for nothin'

Several months ago I thought she disappeared on me until a community member steered me to her last EP "Two Beers Veirs", which was more of an alt-trad-Americana (new term?) thing of beauty than anything she had put out previously. Now she's back to work with a CD coming out on January 10th on her own boutique label called Raving Marching Band… Continue
