Alpine Dreaming with Jim Leary

With Folklorist Jim Leary and guest musician

***JUST ANNOUNCED-- Jim Leary received a 2019 Grammy Nomination for the notes on this CD! ***

In 1920, Ferdinand Ingold, a Swiss settler in Monroe, WI, launched one of the first American record labels established by an immigrant for his own community. Though nearly lost, the songs the Helvetia label produced were recently located and remastered in the album Alpine Dreaming. This recording recalls a bygone era and resonates with those who seek New World lives while remembering their homelands. Folklorist Jim Leary brings this music and its importance to light.
