Jan Boland (flute) John Dowdall (guitar) Michael Zahs and Susie Streit (narrators). Separation and uncertainty followed by joyful reunion or heartbreaking loss were documented in countless letters and songs during the American Civil War. He's Gone Away weaves together a tapestry of music, letters and narrative portraying the emotional hardships faced by Civil War soldiers and the wives, sweethearts and families they left behind. Performed on antique musical instruments from the period (gut strung guitar and wooden flutes).
