The early settlers of this country were simple people, who brought with them the folk traditions of their native lands.  The New World offered so little culture and recreation that they clung to their national inheritance of song and story passed it to their children and to their grandchildren.  Gradually, the folk songs of these people became a part of the great "American Life" and were sung by the builders of our great country.  Through generations these familiar airs have come down to us by oral repetition.  Like echoes from long ago, these tunes represent our vast musical heritage; the mainstay of our American culture.
