Since the railroad's rise in the 1800s it has een a thing of musical fascination and fodder for American musicians and songwriter. Railroad work songs, ballads recounting riveting exploits and instrumental echoes of the once familiar sounds of the steam locomotive have enshrined the railroad in America's musical memory. CALSSIC RAILROAD SONGS mines the Smithsonian Folkways archives to create this tribute to a favorite American source of inspiration.
