"The Big Dig" does "for Boston's local traffic nightmare what the Kingston Trio did for the city's subway system four decades ago [with Charlie and the MTA]" - The Boston Globe

"Paul Revere's Ride" - Longfellow gave us the words, but Americana provides the ride.

"The Boston Tea Party" - "342 chests of Inidan tea were tossed over by indian wannabes. Now the harbor is tea instead of sea, pollution in the service of liberty."

Americana's most recent release, The Big Dig, captures the unique experience of living and working in Boston. Composed by Dr. Watson Reid and Berklee's Emmy award-winning professor, Stephen Webber, the songs on this album satirize contemporary Boston and enliven its history. The title song captured the attention of The Boston Globe, the Improper Bostonian, and commuters listening to local radio.
