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.


  I hope you will stop by to ride on "The Volunteer," the replica canal boat at Providence Metropark. It's a part of history you won't find anywhere else in the Midwest. And I'll play a canal song or two for you! Check out my Locks and Bagels - Music on the Canal concert program on August 18th. Info on the "Calendar" page.

  If you're interested in buying one of my cd's, either go to the "My Music Store" page or email me through the "Contact" page.

  Downloads of my albums and songs are available from "My Music Store" or Amazon, iTunes, and other download sites.

If you're interested in booking me for a concert or program, I'm still booking for 2018, so contact me through the "Contact" page.
