ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I have been playing old time American music for over fifty years, influenced by my father, a west Virginia mountaineer, and his family, and great artists like Doc Watson, Skip James, Ralph Stanley, Lead Belly, John Hurt and Roscoe Holcomb, to name only a few. I started writing songs about eight years ago and my first two albums, Hewed from the Rock and To Be as Gods, are all original tunes. After touring the west coast in 2013 with Michael Koppy, the two of us decided to create a book-CD that would pay homage to the powerful source music that has meant so much to us both for all our musical lives; the result is Songs from the OTHER Great American Songbook, a true collaboration in which I performed and wrote commentaries on 17 unforgettable songs, (some of which are outright "folk" music--- others were popular music of their time, as far back as the mid-1800's), while Koppy called on his expertise as a producer and his experience making his own ground-breaking book-CD Ashmore's Store to put together the book and oversee the project. We hope the resulting album will help keep this vital music alive and continue to inspire and inform us as a nation.
