We're happy you folks liked the video!  As you likely noticed, we were not playing music from the 1920's (as was indicated in some of the information on-screen)-- having to do all through distance, there was misunderstanding.

Thank you, @dusty-turtle.  The cemetery at which we played the lullaby is a place we have visited often, taking walks there the past many weeks.  It's a good place to think.  In the outdoors, it isn't as easy to keep in good tune as when indoors yet we really wanted to make the videos outside.

I'm mesmerized by your sensitive playing, Robin.  So subtle and precise.

And I love how each tune was filmed in a different local spot.  I'm really taken by the cemetery where you play the 155 Lullaby.  What a peaceful spot.

Mark & I live in an area which has come to be known as Little Cities of Black Diamonds , a nickname coined by historian Ivan Tribe.  This year, the LCBD council asked us to participate.  So, we made several little videos and passed them along to be used however the moviemaker saw fit.  In this link, you will find the movie which was put together from some of our little videos and other episodes which were featured during the week-long fest.
