TIME WAS string band has a program to fit your traditional musical needs. A sound system, with inconspicuous microphones, is available for large groups or areas.  All of our music is in the public domain and our own arrangements, so there is no need to worry about ASCAP or BMI fees.
 Traditional Sampler: A mix of fiddle tunes, funny songs, and serious ballads that America has grown with; featuring songs from the 1700's, 1800’s and early 1900’s.
 Texas History in Song: Songs written by, for and about Texas and Texans. This program features songs commemorating events and everyday life in Texas’ history, with a few cowboy songs thrown in for good measure.
Civil War Favorites: Favorite songs from both sides of the “War Between the States.” This program can be tailored to favor either side, depending on your preferences.
Balls & Dances: From the waltz to the Virginia Reel, music to move your feet by. We can call and teach period dances from the 1800’s. Fun for all ages.
