SAN DIEGO, Calif. Heritage, along with members of the Corps of Rediscovery, will perform old-time music and make historical presentations at the Rendezvous in Poway, Friday through Sunday, October 3-5, at Old Poway Park in Poway, CA (near San Diego).
In addition, the groups will participate in the Laguna Mountain Rendezvous, October 17-26, at the Mataguay Scout Reservation in the hills of East San Diego County (north of Julian, near Lake Henshaw). Look for them under the oaks in "Sleepy Hollow."
Heritage will re-release its music CD, The Musical History Tour: Songs and Dance Tunes of the Early American Frontier, in redesigned "green" packaging. The cover features an authentic tintype, courtesy of Nick & Dave Tintype Photography.
Dressed in frontier garb, the Heritage trio, Larry "Friar" Edwards, Chuck "Strummer" Preble and Mike "Hat Man" Robinson, perform authentic music of the 18th and early 19th centuries on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, tin whistle and percussion instruments. They portray mountain men, members of the Lewis & Clark expedition, colonials, Revolutionaries and pirates.
Heritage performs regularly at San Diego-area mountain man rendezvous as well as Old Town San Diego, historical encampments, schools, museums, festivals, fairs and special events.
The three musicians also are members of the Corps of Rediscovery (pictured at left), a group of dedicated living history reenactors specializing in the time period 1750 to 1840.
The Corps of Rediscovery appears regularly at the Blacksmith Shop in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park (4th Saturday of the month), making historical presentations and performing music of the era.
