Battle of Ossippee
Written by Frank and Barbara Shaw © 2009
Frank Shaw: banjo, lead vocals; Barbara Shaw: rhythm guitar, tenor vocals, bass, recording, mixing; Jim Sherlock: lead guitar.
This song was co-written by Frank and Barbara Shaw at their campsite in the pouring rain at the Ossipee Bluegrass Festival in Maine on 7/25/2009. They were longing to go home and feeling burdened by the weather and circumstances, resulting in a song that summons up the mood of a dying colonial soldier dreaming of home.
