    Got this from local musician and songwriter Nathan:

    Fred, I finally got a chance to listen to your album! AWESOME! I like all the songs! I really think its great! Sound really good. I’ll have to pick your brain about how you recorded it sometime. I like (the) guitar run in the beginning of Three Little Drops…Very inspiring. Another song that sticks out is Red River Carts…My Great great great grandfather came to MN on an ox carts from Canada to Le Sur country, or something like that. Its something I imagine could be found in Lomax’s American Ballad and Folk Songs book. I’ll be playing this a lot. There’s not enough I can say about this album, from the playing, the writing, the production, Great Job all around!
