With vocals, guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, bass fiddle, mountain dulcimer, and a wealth of traditional American folk songs, Matthew Sabatella and The Rambling String Band bring the story of the United States vividly to life. Audiences, young and old, sing and dance along to familiar songs as well as virtually forgotten gems that reveal the dreams, hardships, and joys of people who built homes and lives in a fledgling nation. Featuring fiddle tunes, folk songs, Old World ballads, work songs, spirituals, love songs, sea shanties, reels, play parties, breakdowns, and blues, Ballad of America explores the songs, music, and instruments of colonists, pioneers, sailors, lumberjacks, immigrants, '49ers, farmers, mountaineers, slaves, soldiers, cowboys, and railroaders.
