"Music of the Civil War"
Thursday - April 21, 2016
Come see why they call this "Our nation’s most musical war!”
Few who are familiar with the terrible tragedy of the Civil War would be inclined to equate it with anything positive - yet that conflict has been identified, by some, as our nation’s “most musical war.” Beautiful melodies were written in the 1800s. Thousands of poems were written during the same time period and many of those poems became songs. And then there are Stephen Foster’s contributions! Trails & Rails brings you this music along with background on the creation of these songs - many of which we still sing - including one that remains quite popular, even though controversial. Let’s explore this treasure of our heritage with T&R. You might even feel inspired to sing a bit yourself!

We return to Wynola Pizza Express for our 8th annual Celebration of the 4th of July.
What better way to end a beautiful 4th of July day in the mountains or visiting Julian than to have great food (and whatever you think goes best with that!) while listening to cowboy, train and blues songs by award-winning Trails & Rails!
Excellent food - Cozy ambience - Always a new song or two!
Americana at its best!
