New CD celebrates old Adirondack music

Listen to this story
Musician and folklorist Dave Ruch's new CD includes song material found in dusty archives, diaries and obscure songbooks. The Oldest was Born First includes traditional songs and tunes interpreted with guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle and voice. Ruch lives in Buffalo but spends summers in the Adirondacks, and travels the state for research and concerts. Thursday night, from 7-9, he'll play and tell the stories behind some of the songs from his new CD at Traditional Arts in Upstate New York in Canton. Todd Moe has this preview.
