ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Daron Douglas presents Apple Seed and Apple Thorn, the songs of Jane Hicks Gentry of Hot Springs, Madison County, North Carolina. These a cappella songs, in Daron's often haunting and always lyrical style, are early English ballads of romance and murder, singing games, and children's songs.
In the liner notes Daron writes: "My great-grandmother, Jane Gentry, raised nine children, wove coverlets, baked and gardened, told Jack tales, and sang the songs her father taught her. She sang for the mission school. She sang for her family. And in the summers of 1916 and 1917 she sang sixty some songs for an Englishman named Cecil Sharp, who was collecting folksongs in the mountains of Appalachia. Preserved and plentiful English folksongs.
The songs are lovely to me. Their poetry, their gapped scales, the combination of old world in the new. A thread of connection to a long time ago. I hope they make you smile or touch something of your past."
The CD is beautifully designed with an insert poster containing the lyrics. It is a personal, musical gift from an unbroken tradition of musicians of Appalachia."
