Russ Franzen Great Lakes History in Song


  Russ Franzen is a songwriter and balladeer who performs original songs about the history of Lake Boats, Lighthouses, Shipwrecks, the Miami and Erie Canal, and life along the Great Lakes.


  A new season is here. Oh, yes...Spring...but I was referring to the Baseball season! I've set some of my baseball songs in the "Song Circle" on the bottom of this page, including my newest, "The Ballparks of my Mind." There might be a canal song there, too, since the new season on the Miami and Erie Canal begins May 1 at Providence Metropark. I hope to see you there...
