Russ Franzen Great Lakes History in Song


  Russ Franzen is a songwriter and balladeer who performs original songs about the history of Lake Boats, Lighthouses, Shipwrecks, and life along the Great Lakes.



  I added a field recording of one of my latest songs, The Fallen Fife and Drum, to my Songs page. At the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794, two musicians were injured in the fight. That song is for those unnamed young men.

Join me for a FREE Maumee River/M&E Canal song concert/singalong on May 14, 7:30PM at Sidecut Metropark. Details on my Calendar Page.
