In 2003, forty some members of The Grand Old Dulcimer Club, led by David Schnaufer, recorded "Grey Cat on a Tennessee Farm" on wax cylinders like musicians did in the old days. Under the direction of Edison cylinder recording engineer Martin Fisher, the recording took place at Two Rivers Mansion in Nashville, Tn. Watch an excerpt from the film, "Wax" that documented the recording that day, and go back in time to listen to the sound of the old time music just as our ancestors heard it as it was played from the wax cylinders.
