Album Notes
The Cumberland Trio, a folk group that originated in the '60s Folk Era, reunited on November 9, 2001 at the historic Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN, for an official Reunion Concert, which was captured in digital stereo, and features a Double CD, 28 song, 2 1/2 hour rousing concert happening, featuring a raucous and appreciative sold out audience!! It has been praised by such Folk Icons as Mike Kirkland of The Brothers Four and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds as a Landmark Folk Recording that should be in all "folkies'" collections. The Trio appeared on three episodes of ABC-TV's prime Saturday night music show, "Hootenanny," in the mid-'60s and broke up in 1965 after the British Invasion. The ORIGINAL Trio, Andy Garverick, Jerre Haskew & Tom Kilpatrick, reunited in 2001 for this special concert and continue to perform today to sold out audiences at intimate venues across the USA, as well as at large, multi-genre music festivals.

The Reunion Concert features a wide variety of songs, spanning the generations from the Folk Boom of the '60s to the present. To categorize this band's music genre is almost impossible, as it's music consists of hard-driving folk/bluegrass, blues, pop, classical and traditional gospel. Instrumentally, this landmark CD features the great innovative driving and soft banjo styles of Andy Garverick, the incredible unique rhythm guitar and autoharp of Tom Kilpatrick, the high end guitar and banjo rhythm of Jerre Haskew, the solid bottom of Bob Wilkerson on electric bass- and most importantly, the almost unbelievable dobro of Lou Wamp, nicknamed the "Wizard of String" by his peers, who is recognized as one of the top 3 dobro players in the world. Lou also plays in his multi-talented unique style on violin/fiddle, cello and mandolin in this incredibly varied musical experience.

Lastly this concert is incredibly entertaining, featuring funny songs and patter, as well as "Sam" the Lion in costume in lively and fun interaction with the Trio/Band and the audience. In short, it's a really good time created by a great group of singers and musicians fueled by an enthusuastic audience that loved them back!

The group reunited in 2000 with the release of it's signature 1964 RCA LP produced by the legendary Chet Atkins with incredible remastering to CD by Steve Wallace of The Trio and band have recorded two live reunion concerts (2001 on this 2 Disc CD & 2004 on both DVD and CD-also available right here on CDBaby) and is performing concerts at music halls & major multi- genre music festivals across the USA. Their music is being played on major NPR/Americana/Bluegrass/Folk music radio stations across the USA and in Europe. PBS broadcasted the Trio's 2004 reunion concert DVD within Tennessee in December of 2005, with plans to syndicate it to all other PBS affiliate stations throughout the USA in 2006-2007.

The Fiery Heart
The four albums by The Cumberland Trio plus the one by Jerre Haskew and his family are among my all-time favorites. During my long convalescence, their recordings have stayed beside my stereo, giving me inspiration and healing.
All of these albums have the beautiful and engaging harmonies reminiscent of The Chad Mitchell Trio. In addition, they feature a wide range of styles. For example, Andy Garvarick’s version of an Earl Scruggs classic, “Shuckin’ the Corn,” shows you what great playing you hear on these albums. Likewise, the dobro artistry of Louis Wamp is warm and sweet. Similarly, the dobro, banjo, and mando playing of Michael Headrick is amazing.
Moreover they cover tunes from many genres. For example, they go from blues tunes like Mississippi John Hurt‘s “Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor,” to country songs like Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors.” They even do a subtle protest song, “I Wish I Were a Babe”:

They call me Christian,
Call me Black or Jew.
When they call for me,
They call for you.

They also do children’s songs every bit as charming as Pete Seeger’s “Riding in My Car” and Peter, Paul and Mary’s “The Marvelous Toy.” Also, they can be as funny as the Smother’s Brothers, for example, “Old Dogs (Can Still Bury a Bone).“
One of their specialties is to combine songs into fabulous medleys. For instance, their version of “Sloop John B” starts with the Kingston Trio’s opening lick, then develops the harmony of the Beach Boys’ version, then merges wonderfully into “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffet. Just when you are reeling from all of that, they end by sliding back into “Sloop John B.”
The albums to look for are the two early ones, “The Cumberland Trio: Lost and Found,” which was recorded in New York City, and “The Cumberland Trio,” which was recorded in Tennessee and produced by Chet Atkins. As you might expect, the Atkins version is recorded better. In addition, it contains all of the tunes from “Lost and Found.“ But each gives you the excitement that the Cumberlands generated back in the early 1960‘s, plus detailed liner notes.
There are also the two double-live albums, The Cumberland Trio: “Reunion Concert” (recorded in 2001) and The Cumberland Trio: “Back Where We Began” (recorded in 2004). You need to get both of these because they are equally impressive, and each contains some songs that aren’t on the other one.
As fine as those are, the real corker is the recent one, “Songs from the Fiery Gizzard: The Music of the Haskew Family.” It has all of the brilliance of the other ones, but the melodies and chord progressions are simply transcendent. Moreover, the lyrics would do Dylan, Prine, Lightfoot, Cohen and Waits all proud:

God must cry himself to sleep.

I can’t play anymore, but if I could, this is what I’d play, and this is how I’d play it.

Great Music! Brings back fond memories of folk music in the 60's.
Wonderful mix of funny, up-tempo and slow songs with great harmony.

Lynda Bullard

Great listening!
This CD brought back old memories. On Labor Day week-end we listened to it from Murfreesboro TN to Atlanta GA. It's a great CD. I will buy more for gifts.


Love the music. Lots of memories.
I wish I could hear more music like this everyday.
