BZ and Peg had a wonderful time choosing the songs to accompany the stories on Striking Up Gold Mountain: Stories & Songs of the California Gold Rush. Along the way, we had great help from many of our musician friends: Steve “Curly” Anderson, Steve LaVine, Richard Sholer and Carolyn Sylva. Each one generously shared his or her talents and time.
