1865: Songs of Hope and Home from the American Civil War

Anonymous 4 and special guest Bruce Molsky commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the (American) Civil War with songs that were in the air in the year 1865. Ballads and choruses originally intended for the stage and the parlor, songs and instrumental tunes from the hills and back roads of America: these are the stylized, versified, personal stories prized by so many men, women and children who lived through "This Cruel War."

Anonymous 4 et son invité spécial Bruce Molsky commémorent en chansons le 150ème anniversaire de la fin de la Guerre de Sécession. Au fil d'un répertoire populaire en 1865, ces ballades et refrains conçus pour la scène ou destinés à un cadre plus intime, ces chants et autres airs instrumentaux nés dans les collines de l'Amérique profonde esquissent les drames personnels des hommes, des femmes et des enfants victimes de «cette guerre cruelle».

Mit Liedern, die im Jahr 1865 überall gesungen wurden, erinnert Anonymous 4 gemeinsam mit Bruce Molsky als Gast an den 150. Jahrestag der Beendigung des Amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs. Ursprünglich für die Bühne und die Salons geschriebene Balladen und Chorgesänge, Lieder und Instrumentalstücke aus dem Bergland und von den Landstraßen Amerikas: die stilisierten, in Versform verbreiteten Geschichten der Männer, Frauen und Kinder, die diesen "grausamen Krieg" durchzustehen hatten.
