Album Notes
Kathryn Parham Brickey grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina (Leicester/Asheville area) learning fiddle tunes from the greats of the region including Roger Howell, Arvil Freeman, and Bobby Hicks. When college came around, she attended East Tennessee State University where she fiddled and sang in the Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music Program. She participated with the program for 4 years playing venues such as the Carter Family Fold, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, and the Down Home Johnson City (TN).
Kathryn is the 2012 recipient of the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Award. Master fiddler Roger Howell is quoted, saying, “Kathryn represents what we’re in this for. She is the future. She has the grace, the style, the obvious talent, and she understands where it comes from.”
She is a regular performer at Shindig on the Green, The Mountain Dance and Folk Festival, and the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Festival.
“The Sweetest Flower” is her debut album. It was recorded at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City. It includes bluegrass, old time, classic country, and gospel songs.
You can find her some Thursday nights at Bobby Hicks’ jam at Zuma Coffee in Marshall, NC. Now married, she lives in Bristol, TN where she performs whenever she can with her dad and other great musicians from the heart of Bluegrass country.

The Sweetest Flower...get it!
A wonderful CD that demonstrates the talents of Kathryn Parham Brickey. The singing and playing are first class and there is great variety in the tracks from the Celtic-influenced Planxty Howell, plenty of great Bluegrass and some Old Time too (Julianne Johnson). As the carnival barker might say...'Every One A Winner!' but in this case, it's true. Thoroughly recommended.

The Sweetest Flower

This is Kathryn's first cd and she has outdone herself! The musicians are superb and the harmonies tight. I love this album!! Hope she'll record another one!

Kriss Sands

Wonderful Album!
Kathryn is an extremely talented young fiddle player and singer. I've had the privilege of hearing her perform live many times over the years, and this CD perfectly reflects her unique expertise in traditional old-time as well as more contemporary bluegrass music.

DJ Wisconsin Joe

The Sweetest Flower a very well done album and a pleasure to listen to. You will find yourself keeping this one close to the top of the pile. Upbeat instrumentation and beautiful vocals will have you listening to this again and again! I recommend it for any acoustic music lover!
