Better than a faded diary or a tattered photo, this fine collection captures the spirit of those who stayed at home. Included are both Union and Confederate patriotic tunes, sentimental pieces, minstrel songs, popular tunes of the day, songs of returning soldiers and runaway slaves. 45 minutes, 13 instrumentals, 4 vocals. 'Well Done! Highly Recommended!' - Bluegrass Unlimited 'The Home Front' is just fabulous! I LOVE the selections AND the arrangements.....it is a GREAT recording and I never tire of listening to it. Beautifully done, Wayne!' - Mike Landau.
