E.L. Kurtz has been busy performing at a variety of events. He has established himself as one of the most sought-after performers of colonial-American music. He recently performed at the annual banquet for the Illinois Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and received an overwhelming response. He has a busy summers schedule ahead!

Copies of "A Soldiers's Journey" continue to sell like crazy. Everyday digital copies of the songs are being purchased and dowloaded around the world, and more and more historic sites are now selling (and selling out) his CD.

Recording has started on the next E.L. Kurtz CD entitled Twelve From the Bard. This album will feature twelve colonial-American songs performed solo by E.L. Kurtz with his antique tenor lute. Whereas A Soldier's Journey includes many instruments, harmony vocals and major production, Twelve From the Bard will be stripped down to provide an authentic re-creation of what someone would have heard from a bard in 18th-century America. Twelve From the Bard will be released in late summer 2007.

A Soldier's Journey is now available in the gift shops at several historic locations, including the George Roger's Clark National Historic Park in Vincennes, IN and Fort de Chartres in Prairie du Roche, IL. The album will be available soon at additional locations around the country.
