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.


It's November and I'm back in Toledo (even though my heart is in Northeast Michigan). Looking forward to sharing my music with the good folks here.

I'll be making some changes to my blog in the near future, writing about my new songs. Stay tuned!

 After three years, I finally finished my song about Carry Nation in Michigan. It's up on Youtube.
