The songs are old stories put to modern folk-roots/Americana melodies and recorded in his Russell Valley studio on acoustic guitars he created. The Russell Valley studio is a serene place to write, record and preserve some of Truckee’s heritage.
These songs were written within view of historical markers that indicate the routes of old wagon trails. Inspiration for the CD came from Truckee’s unique past and the desire to keep it alive.
Building guitars locally for acoustic musicians, writing songs about life in Truckee, and then singing and sharing them with others in Truckee, is what Blair calls “Truckee Home Grown.”
