    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.

    Songs about railroads display attitudes about the "iron horse," from the young girl, anticipating the arrival of marriageable railroad workers to the grumpy wagoner, afraid railroads will kill his business and bring in crews of Irishmen! (Oh no! There goes the neighborhood!)

    Railroad songs and stories help us recapture the wonder the rails once inspired. Using these tunes and yarns, we'll explore what the railroad meant to the West and its pioneers. 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.

    “Seeing the elephant,” they called it. It was the pioneer’s term for getting wised up and fed up.

    When the 19th century settlers started West, they sang songs about the land of milk and honey. By the time they got here, they rewrote the same songs to tell of rattlesnakes and alkali water.  Performed by Bill Rossiter.

    A fire, a murder, a mine disaster or other tragedy was often told through music in America’s early days.

    Few of the songs are polished, and often they don't "get it right," but many of them are hilarious, and they have guts and directness that make up for what they lack in finesse. And they tell what really happened. No lie. Honest.

    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.

    Learn more about Bill and his presentations on the Idaho Humanities Council website.
