John-Carlos Perea: “The Blue Horse Special is one of the first songs I learned from Lakota singer Barney Hoehner-Peji. It is my understanding that it may have come down from Matthew Two Bulls and that Barney later ‘arranged’ it for his own use. This was a signature song for the Blue Horse Singers, and it is with respect and gratitude to them, and Barney, that I sing it here.”
