The Logan Elm


Artist: Robin Thompson
Genre: Folk & Singer-Songwriter
Duration: 00:03:00

Description:
The tune was named to honor the memory of Chief Logan and his family. . . Also, we wish to stand in support of Native Americans seeking justice today through nonviolent means. Mark is playing a Martin 0028 and I am playing a TimbreHill mountain dulcimer built by my friend Paul Conrad.

Thanks, friends.  I value your comments; it seems the mood we hoped to convey through the piece may have come through the play.

You and Mark work so well together.  The strings just weave around each other. This is absolutely beautiful!  I'm really impressed.

Thank you for the kind comments, friends.  

My high school, Logan Elm HS, was named for the tree by which Chief Logan's speech was supposedly read.  (This site is, generally, referred to as being north of Chillicothe.) As an aside, for those of you familiar with the tune Big Scioty [sic], the site where the Logan Elm stood is in the Scioto River valley.

What a sad and mournful song - at least to me.  I love it.

Robin and Mark this is beautiful! Thank you for pointing this out it is time we support our Native people.

It would be nice to add Native American flute to this piece.
