SAN DIEGO, Calif. The Heritage CD "The Musical History Tour" received a "shinin' times" from San Diego Troubadour, a monthly newspaper featuring folk and roots music.
Reviewer Mark Pulliam wrote: "Heritage’s goal is for the listener to be able to close his eyes and 'imagine sitting by a remote campfire or attending a frolic or barn raising.' In this, the group succeeds, even without the visual benefit of period outfits."
The band performs songs and dance tunes of the early American frontier. The group released the CD in September.
The album features folk songs and sea chanteys from the 18th and early 19th centuries, including Rosin the Bow, The Gum Tree Canoe, Shenandoah, Golden Vanity, and Wayfaring Stranger, as well as fiddle and minstrel tunes of that era, such as St. Anne's Reel, Old French, Leather Britches, Cuffy, Pretty Maid Milking Her Cow, Damon's Winder, Yellow Barber and Grasshopper Sittin’ on a Sweet Potato Vine.
