Before we had radio and phonographs, people had to make their own music or be near someone who was making music to hear it.

Except for a few minstrel shows and occasional schoolhouse and medicine shows, even exceptional musicians gained only local, informal popularity. They kept their day jobs at farming, ranching or whatever they did.

Old-time music was first recorded in the 1920s by record companies that didn't quite know what to call it, so they labeled it "old-time" knowing that it was rooted in the past.

With its rich and varied sounds and lyrics, this truly was music of the people and by the people, played on porches, sometimes at dances throughout rural America.

When we -- the Lone Star String Band -- play these old songs and fiddle tunes, it touches people, both young and old. (Hipsters see us as "authentic.") They innately understand this is about our musical heritage and making a connection with the past.

We play old-time music because it is old, a bit wild and woolly and it fits us. We hope you might like it too.
