Songs originating in the Frontier Era in and around Pittsburgh were rediscovered by Jacob A. Evanson, sung here by Vivien

Richman. While there are a few cheerful and amusing ditties ("Pittsburg Town" "Soho on a Saturday Night") most have a tone that reflects the bleak landscape of an emerging industrial town painted through their lyrics. Richman’s deep contralto and rhythm guitar add exquisite depth to this album.
