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.



  Welcome to Summer! I had a request for a recording of my song, Tragedy and Triumph, which is the story of Dennis Hale, sole survivor of the Daniel J. Morrell shipwreck in 1966. It is on the Songs page under "Shipwreck Songs."
