The story starts sometime in the mid 1850's when his great-great-great grandfather was attacked by Indians
going over a mountain pass in Colorado. He jumped in a river to escape. Generations later...a little luck and
the spirit of adventure passed down making one lifetime seem like many. Lewis Childs has busked the streets
of Europe, played in an Irish Folk Music combo, done field recordings in Brazil, performed with a high flying
acrobatic music and dance ensemble headed by a Brazilian Master of Capoeira, and has traveled to Japan with
the World Music folk duo "World of Songs." He has returned to his roots writing songs and telling stories that
travel through epic sonic landscapes. Oh, his great-grandma was a semi-professional whistler.
