Our songs travel the earth. We sing to one another. Not a single note is ever lost and no song is original.
At the end of World War I German sniper Fidelis Waldvogel returns to the village where he grew up. He marries Eva, the pregnant girlfriend of his best friend who had been killed in the war. But he wants to start a new life in America so he sets out for Seattle. When his money runs out in Argus, North Dakota Fidelis gets a job working for the local butcher. Soon he has earned enough money to send for Eva and her baby and then to open his own butcher shop. Argus where they live is a town filled with a cast of quirky characters. Roy is the town drunk and Delphine was raised by him but does not know her own family. Then there is Step-and-a-Half, one of the town’s homeless who is constantly walking across the vast prairie. The Master Butchers Singing Club is a story about the good and bad in people and how they play out in the characters lives.
