  • Video Song “Ruben You Can Play Your Banjo” - Mark Dvorak from Chicago’s Old Town School, drove out of his way to let us record one of his favorite songs. "Ruben" was written by Missourian, Ron Morris A.K.A. Bartholomew Bean. The setting is historic Ripson Bridge in central Bond County, IL.
  • Video Song “Presbyterian Guitar” - Swamp Weiss playing the John Hartford guitar piece. That’s my old classical guitar. Swamp had never played it before. We used a wrinkled blue sheet for a blue screen. The guitar is actually resting on my dining room table. Swamp had never played that particular guitar before in his life. No rehearsal. The prairiescape is south of southern Bond County Illinois from whence Swamp hales.
  • Slideshow “Life On A Midwestern Farm 1890 - 1910” - Robert Whiteside’s 10 minute documentary derived from a lost box of 75 antique dry plate 4 x 5 inch photo negatives purchased at an Illinois antique store. Soundtrack by Swamp Weiss.
