Traveling the country, keeping old tunes alive and expanding the canon of Old-time songs, the Reeltime Travelers show a reverence for tradition while creating their own Old-Time Reeltime Americana music.

Paul Tyler and Friends pay tribute to the pioneers of country radio with their tribute to the WLS National Barn Dance in Chicago. This now legendary radio show that began broadcasting in 1924 featured a number of country and old time music talents and influenced generations of future musicians. Even though the program had an almost immediate impact on American culture, many of the performers from the first fifteen years of the Barn Dance have been, for the most part, ignored by country music historians. Tyler and his friends set out to rectify that oversight.
