This recording features music from many ethnic groups who have settled here in Michigan.  The diversity of music included on this recording gives the listener an enjoyable introduction to these ethnic groups. 

The liner notes are an account of Michigan's history from its beginning to present day.  The contributions of each ethnic group are also mentioned along with the background of the music representing them.

These selections are also featured in our Michigan's Heritage concert/assembly.  This program documents Michigan's development from the Ice Age to present.  It is suitable for audiences from kindergarten to senior citizen. 

This recording makes a wonderful gift for your friends who have departed from our state for warmer climates.  It also makes a wonderful "house gift" if you are traveling and visiting.

When Michigan celebrated its sesquicentennial in 1985,  I decided to write a school assembly that combined its history and music.  For me, the music is one of the best ways to portray each of the ethnic groups that have added to the composite of our state.  See if your heritage is represented here.

I enjoyed the diversity of selections on this recording.  It was also quite inspiring to work with the different musicians who joined us for this project.  Enjoy!

Assisting on this recording was our dear friend, Judy London, playing our antique harmonium.  This instrument was used as a portable field organ for the troops in WWI.

Fiddle music was very popular during the early years of our state.  Peggy Garriques-Cortelyou was kind enough to add that authentic fiddle sound to our recording. 

We couldn't play a danceable waltz without the underpinning of a string bass.  So Gerry Nelson also became a part of this recording. 

Gerry also assisted on Collecting Consort composer Roger Aldridge's Young Henry's Wild Ride which starts and ends with a Model T making the rounds of your speakers. 

The gentle essence of Michigan's nature as recorded by the late A.B. (Pete) Church proceed several selections.  They will magically transport you into our Water Wonderland.
