Steam and Steel: Songs of Railroad’s Golden Age

A collection of ten songs inspired by historic stories and tales of the Golden Age of the Steam Locomotive, written by train historian Ken Hojnacki and performed by a cast of award-winning bluegrass musicians, produced by Laurie Lewis.

Featuring Laurie Lewis (vocals, fiddle), Tom Rozum (vocals, mandolin), Scott Huffman (vocals, guitars), Patrick Sauber (banjo), Chad Manning (fiddle), Bobby Black (steel & resophonic guitars), and Andrew Conklin (string bass).

Strikingly packaged with original art by Genevieve Davis, this collection is the perfect addition to any gift shop or catalogue.

“Through the sounds of old-time mountain music, bluegrass, and early country music, Laurie Lewis beautifully interprets Ken Hojnacki’s timeless songs. This one will not leave your CD player!”
