ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Doug Pratt has been playing the autoharp for over 50 years, having first learned from his grandmother. He has a unique style that acknowledges his roots in bluegrass and folk music, but allows him to expand into a variety of genres not usually associated with the autoharp. On this CD, his sister Julie joins him on vocals, and seven other instrumentalists playing bass, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and piano appear in various combinations. This debut CD was made possible by the first (2011) Cohen-Grappell Recording Endowment of the Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering. Pratt's music is often described as "happy", and it is definitely upbeat and lighthearted. This is the autoharp as you have never heard it before.

You can't play that on the autoharp, but Doug can!
Just like old Maw Maw's autoharp in track 11, Doug's autoharp brings a smile to my face.
The album is both assuringly traditional and refreshingly novel. Songs such as "Brown's Ferry Blues" and "Maw Maw Plays the Autoharp" are traditional in style and arrangement. Songs like "THE ENTERTAINER" and "'til There Was You" on the other hand shake off tradition in favour of widening the autoharp horizon. A touching and cheering listen.
