ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alice Gerrard is a singer and songwriter who has performed and advocated for old-time and bluegrass music for over 50 years. Her recordings with Hazel Dickens during the 1960s and ’70s influenced a generation of women musicians from Laurie Lewis to the Judds. Her recording, Follow the Music, was nominated for a 2015 Grammy in the Folk category. She is founder of the Old-Time Herald old-time music magazine, and makes her home in Durham, NC. She was inducted into the IBMA Hall of Fame in Sept. 2017. Kay Justice is widely known as one of the finest traditional singers in the country. She hails from Southwest Virginia where she grew up listening to the sounds of country, old-time and bluegrass music. Her long-time partnership and several recordings with traditional singer Ginny Hawker produced some of the finest duet singing you've ever heard. Kay's recent solo recording, "Hickory Wind," has garnered rave reviews for its simplicity and honesty.

Alice and Kay have known one another for a long time and decided to make this recording of songs and tunes they love to sing and play. It includes original songs by Alice, Sam Gleaves, Kate Long, Beverly Futtrell, Nell Smith, and of course the title cut by the amazing Ola Belle Reed, plus some old-time country duets. Backup is sparse—mostly guitar and mandolin; tunes include traditional fiddle, banjo and guitar tunes that Alice and Kay learned from old-timers directly. There is a lot of duet harmony plus some trios and a quartette with more than able help from Gail Gillespie, Ginny Hawker, and Mac Traynham.
