This is a compilation of my ballad singing. Each of these songs is a window into a period of time, a type of character, or a realm of myth or magic. Ballads range from Child Ballads of European origin to the ages and phases in the development of American culture.

Some of these arrangements are simple acoustic ones. Others have a little more instrumentation and panache.

Dean Rathje: voices, guitars, banjo, dobro, mandolin, fiddle, piano, bass.
