ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Old-Time Banjo and fiddle music from these two North Carolina musicians. 12 pieces from the archaic sounds of the South. All pieces feature fretless or fretted banjo and fiddle. Alternate tunings with all tunings included in the liner notes. These songs and tunes were learned from the original artist's recordings. The artists include Fiddling John Carson, Leadbelly, Clyde Davenport, Tommy Jarrell, Joe Birchfield, Garfield Akers, Emmet Lundy and Grayson and Whittier. Frank Lee was a founding member of the Freight Hoppers. Adam Tanner currently tours with the Crooked Jades. Slide banjo is featured on Dough Roller Blues, which he learned from an early recording of Garfield Akers and Joe Callicot. The two mule pieces come from the playing of Fiddling John Carson and the duo of Chitwood and Landress, all from Georgia. Please check out my website link for other info and products available.
THANK YOU!!

Great old time fiddle and banjo!
Man, this is Old Timey music! What beautiful haunting sounds Tanner gets out of his fiddle and Lee gets out of his banjo, especially on the tracks where he plays with gut strings (all but 2 tracks). Frank Lee's vocals aren't always as strong as his playing, but they sure ain't bad. I especially like his singing on "When I Was a Cowboy" and on "Elkhorn Ridge." Frank's banjo playing is both a sympathetic backing-up of Tanner's fiddling AND just as interesting as it. Definitely worth the price. I'm looking forward to his next CD. Also check out Frank Lee's Artscene.

Frank has such an even, strong and rhythmic way of backing up the fiddle.
There are some great tunes in here, and some very worthy experiments with a bluesy touch. Worth listening to, repeatedly.

Fantastic Old Time Tunes: Primative in the best way!
Frank Lee is one of old time music's great innovators. He plays a variety of banjos in his driving and unusual style. Frank, who was the driving force behind the Freighthoppers is joined here by master fiddler Adam Tanner. Old time the way it should be played!

Great Stuff
Superb, expertly played old-time fiddle/banjo tunes with all the nuances and crooked twists included. Lee's playing is so tasteful and right on -- it's the perfect compliment to Adam's soulful fiddling. The only thing I would change on future recordings would be to add in bass and guitar on a few selections to bring the house down. The urge to dance would be impossible to resist. Buy this CD!

WOW!..........talk about Old Time Music.........Here it is!
I've never heard of playing a fiddle tune in GCGC. Man these guys are the real thing. Very old time, archaic appalachian sound.....(the kind I like!). These guys present an outstanding collection of pieces which should fit anyone old time music buffs tastes........Great CD.
