ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris Edwards is a classically trained musician who has experience playing a wide spectrum of music ranging from country to rock and roll, and from classical to jazz. He recently received his master's degree in history from the University of Missouri and has served as an adjunct faculty member in the music departments at Columbia College and the University of Missouri where he taught guitar.

Recently, Chris recorded "Blood on the Border" which is a musical and narrative story of Quantrill's Confederate Missouri guerrillas during the Civil War in Missouri. The project documents true events as experienced by a guerrilla, Bud Pence, who narrates the story. Some of the characters involved in the story include other guerrillas such as Frank and Jesse James, William Quantrill, and "Bloody" Bill Anderson.

Chris has studied guerrilla warfare in Missouri for over twenty years. Because of his knowledge and expertise in theis area, he has been interviewed by A&E Network (The Real West) and TBS Network (The Untold West) for their television programs about the James/Younger Gang. In 1995, Chris was invited by the James family to serve as a pallbearer at Jesse James third burial.

Chris's future plans are to continue expanding his career as a professional musician by composing music, recording and compiling songs for a new album. He is also preparing to publish a book about the attack on Lawrence, Kansas by Colonel William Clark Quantrill on August 21, 1863.
