“Songs and Stories From the Civil War” will transport you back in time
to the most turbulent era in our nation’s history. Dressed as a 19th Century
performer, using period musical instruments, Bobby explores the stories of both the
North and South through the music they loved. Each song is placed in context with
historical background and portrays the struggles, hopes, and fears of Americans
during this long and bloody conflict.

These songs and stories tell of sweethearts and families left behind, fallen comrades,
the hope of going home, and the pride, bravery, and patriotism of the volunteers who
answered their country’s call. This is not just a performance for Civil War buffs but
for anyone who loves great music, inspired storytelling, and an evening of
unforgettable entertainment.

A seasoned performer, Bobby Horton is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer,
and music historian. For more than thirty years he has performed with the musicalcomedy
group Three On A String. He has also produced and performed music for
ten Ken Burns PBS films, two programs for the A&E Network, ten films for The
National Park Service, plus many others. He has performed “Songs and Stories
From the Civil War” from coast to coast since 1985.

The fourteen volume-series of authentic music from The War Between the States
arranged, performed, and recorded by Bobby Horton has been acclaimed by many
historical organizations and publications in America and Europe, and is featured at
most National Battlefield Parks. In a review of this series, Blue and Gray Magazine
says “Bobby Horton proves to be the premier artist of Civil War music.”
