Down Home Dairyland - Extras!

The cover of the CD is a black and white photo collage of musicians with their instruments. 
Folklorists Jim Leary and Rick March have distilled a definitive presentation of Upper Midwestern traditional and ethnic music, from Ojibwe drums to Norwegian fiddles, from polka to salsa, from gospel choirs to southeast Asian rock bands. The book is a listener’s guide packed with photos, essays, and resources.
