Music and Lewis and Clark are not words that generally go in the same sentence. But the journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark show that music was an integral part of their famous journey. Music brought welcome entertainment to the men, far from home. It also served as a diplomatic bridge to the American Indians they met on their way. Although Lewis and Clark themselves did not play, they had two fiddlersPierre Cruzatte and George Gibsonamong the 30 or so men who went with them. Other members of the expedition sang and danced. The journals do not mention specific tunes the men played, but we can say with certainty that the music here dates from the period. We have rigorously documented all but the Native American pieces, which were handed down through oral tradition.
