Rex Genuine Cowboy Songs (35) RE: Genuine Cowboy Songs 07 May 15


DtG and gillymor, I appreciate your keen ears. Yes, that is a German made Anglo concertina that I used to accompany myself for The Texas Cowboy. Mark and I found enough examples of the ol' cheese box in use by the early cowboys and felt it was worthy to include among the instruments likely to be played on the open range. As with the other tracks, we wanted sparse arrangements so the concertina stands alone and holds up fine I think. Tinsley stated that The Texas Cowboy first shows up as a poem in 1888.
