If you attended college in Missoula in the last 25 years, you probably closed down the Union Club dancing to Russ Nasset and the Revelators. Nasset takes his inspiration from songs, genres and stories passed down to him from a childhood spent in Shelby, on Montana’s Hi-Line. "The River and the Light," "The Shape of Things Gone Missing, The Shape of Things to Come:" the titles of Martha Scanlan's recordings reflect time spent in southeast Montana with generations of Tongue River Valley ranchers who are trying hard to hold on to a quiet, treasured way of life.
