The Corps of Rediscovery is a group of dedicated living history re-enactors specializing in the time period 1740 to 1840.
Dressed in period costumes, the members play authentic music of the 18th and early 19th centuries on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and tin whistle. They portray mountain men, members of the Lewis & Clark expedition (including Pierre Cruzatte, the one-eyed fiddler), colonials, Revolutionaries and pirates.
Heritage captures the music of early America on its recent recording, "The Musical History Tour." The music CD features the ballads and toe-tapping dance tunes that livened up social gatherings on the waterfront, in the back woods and along the expanding frontier.
