Ed Littlefield: Going to the West

Music from the 60s...the 1860s
Traditional & original music performed by Ed Littlefield, Jr.

"This recording just glistens. It radiates the true spirit of back porch American music... 'Peggy-O' is a gem... I just can't stop listening to Going to the West... is this some kind of potent sonic voodoo?" --- Micky Hart, the Grateful Dead

His solo CD, Going to the West showcases his musical prowess as he layers tracks with a wide range of instruments: acoustic and electric guitars, dobro, pedal steel guitar, piano, fiddle, mandolin, bass and Highland bagpipes.

"In making this CD, I tried in part to recreate the sound of the old time music from the mid 1800s.
Miss Julia and I like to dance to old time fiddle tunes and 'Kingdom Coming' and 'Over the Waterfall' are two tunes that one might contra dance to. After a set of square dances and contra dances the bands typically end with a waltz before they take a break.
I have very much enjoyed waltzing with Julia and I had her lovely image before me as I composed this tune. Some folks write love poems or letters or can think of clever romantic things to say; sadly I am all too often tongue-tied in these efforts, but am able to compose the occasional tune. 'Miss Julia's Waltz' is one of songs that have been inspired by Julia Derby, the other being 'Miss Julia's Dream.'" – Ed Littlefield, Jr.

"Just a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying the CD. I listen to it all the time, and just love the cadence of your voice and the beautiful melodies. 'Peggy-O' is one of my favourite songs and I've never heard it sung more sweetly." – Wade Davis, author of Shadows in the Sun and One River.
