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 have a new song for this Christmas holiday season, A Canal Boat Christmas, based on a true story from the Ohio and Erie Canal. You can listen to it and check out some of my other Great Lakes Christmas songs on my Songs page. You can download them, too!
