Drive Sorrows Away – A joyous tavern sing with a turn-of-the-19th century flavour.  Joseph assembled some forty friends with well lubricated voices in a tavern setting and let them in songs historical, traditional, and contemporary in the style of a real late 18th century/early 19th century sing – not at all your parlour performance!  English concertina, tenor banjo, whistle… and a list of songs worth your time to learn!  A booklet with liner notes is included and an accompanying PDF on the disk of a song book – accessible when the disk is loaded onto your computer and open the file as though from a drive.
