When was the last time you joined in a sing-along? “Amateur music used to be the most natural thing in the world,” says singer-guitarist Ted F. Toerpe. “Up till a hundred years ago, most people only heard professional music a few times a year, if that. The rest of the time, they were on their own.”

 As a teen, Ted taught himself to play guitar using his grandfather’s old Gibson J45. He picked up the habit of sing-alongs from his mother. “In my mother’s family, someone would just start one of the old songs as they sat around after supper. Pretty soon everyone would join in—even adding harmonies.”

 Ted learned as many of the “old songs” as he could—and he learned the stories behind the songs, too. “Most people know that sailors had different kinds of work songs depending on the task. But so did everybody else. Wagon drivers, quilters, shopkeepers, sorority girls, even small-town businessmen—they all whiled away the time with song. I love sharing songs and their stories with people.” Ted and his wife live in Dodge County, WI, with their children and grandchildren nearby.
