This album represents a sampling of folk and hymn tunes Amish
enjoy on the harmonica. They probably were first learned in school
from non-Amish teachers before Amish established their own schools in
the 1950's. Tunes on this recording have slight variations, a legacy
from the persecution of the past centuries.
The harmonica is played
by a young wife and mother. She played these songs as a teenager when
she was "running around" with the young people at singings. The
harmonica is the same one she used as a teenager, with no half steps.
She now lives in a more liberal community where recording is permitted
if done anonymously.
