Our gospel, bluegrass, and old-time folk music collections are unsurpassed, and we have a full catalog of outlaw ballads, cowboy music, pioneer music, Lewis & Clark music, and railroad songs. Instruction books written by author, teacher, and musician Wayne Erbsen teach total and absolute beginners how to play the mandolin, clawhammer banjo, bluegrass banjo, fiddle, guitar and dulcimer. We also publish a series of best-selling cookbooks of traditional pioneer recipes by Barbara Swell.
