Songs from the Big Front Porch: a Celebration of American Folk Music

Bridget Ball & Christopher Shaw

This is a project we loved creating! We worked with some of the finest musicians in the world - highly respected musicians who proudly carry on the folk tradition with expertise and devotion. And, to encourage listeners to participate in the fun, both the lyrics and the guitar chords are included in the liner notes!

"Wonderful!! Superb!! Exquisite!! ... There’s nothing like excellent unpretentious singers singing the old songs ...with a touch of the new. Songs from the Big Front Porch is the album to get for those who want to know what an album should be! I love it!" (Tor Jonassen WRDV-FM)
