In singing about our food we celebrate our identity.
Many food songs represent nostalgia for an uncomplicated past, when grandma cooked real food. These songs are about home cooking, about the ethnic and farm kitchen, pork chops, corned beef and cabbage, lefse, pastries. They are all fallback dishes when times are tough, and go-to dishes when we need to get back to basics. Performed by Bill Rossiter.
From Kalispell, MT, Bill Rossiter travels throughout Northwest, presenting songs and stories from various eras of American history. He has a large repertoire of “roots music,” and has performed for western and heritage museums, arts and cultural centers, town festivals, and library series. Bill’s songs are accompanied by guitar, banjo, autoharp and harmonica.
