ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in 1921, Clyde Davenport preserves a repertoire heavily laden with baroque log cabin music from frontier times, but also sleek racing breakdowns and sly blues from the 1920's. Recorded between 1977 and 1980, Clyde's first album of fiddle music and solo banjo fully introduce his flawless and clear old-time sound, and a long list of tunes that would become common currency in traditional music circles.
Since the 1980's, Clyde Davenport's master has been acknowledged and emulated by the best musicians of the string band revival. In 1992, he received a National Heritage Fellowship, the most esteemed award for excellence and influence granted to tradition bearers by the National Endowment for the Arts. Clydeoscope announced the Age of Clyde, an onset of coast-to-coast attention for the Kentucky fiddler, and a pilgrim's path taken by hundreds of young fiddlers to his door.
