Many people in the horse world are familiar with Mark Rashid as an internationally-known clinician, horse trainer and author of four books. However, this project shows another side of Mark. For almost as long as he has been working with horses and cattle (over 40 years), he has also been a professional musician and singer/songwriter. In fact, over the years, Mark has either played with or opened for recording artists such at Michael Martin Murphy, Larry Groce (of the NPR radio program Mountain Stage), The Marshal Tucker Band, the Dixie Dregs, and Pure Prairie League, just to name a few.
In this, his first solo CD, Mark has put together a collection of songs that tell the very special story of a Colorado Ranch between the years 1858 and 1930. Mark wrote all of the songs on the CD (with the exception of two) and plays acoustic guitars, resonator guitar, guitar synthesizer, banjo, piano and keyboards as well as the vocals.
