“Blue sky like a blanket, shaking out the dust I’m looking for some green against the rust – Ayee-oooo” 
– San Luis Valley Song, Annie Hills

“It’s said the song on long dusty stretches of the desert helped to ease pain and suffering. Songs were a practical tool — a means to quiet the cows and quiet the mind so neither would go wandering too far. 

This is a show of frontier creators, each using a unique style to interpret the trail songs found along their own road west.” – Max Kauffman, Curator, neü folk
