Album Notes
Steve and Ruth Smith, from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, play a blend of Celtic Appalachian traditional and original music featuring hammered dulcimer, old-time banjo, guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, and vocals. Heirlooms contains 10 original songs of Steve and Ruth's along with a few traditional tunes in both vocal and instrumental tracks. Steve and Ruth, both of Scots-Irish heritage, take their audiences from the traditional Celtic music of Scotland and Ireland that migrated with the Scots-Irish into the Appalachian Mountains, through the early music of the Southern Highlands, and on to Steve and Ruth's new original music about mountain life and rural Appalachian values. Dirty Linen Folk & World Music Magazine says "Ruth Smith's touch on the hammered dulcimer is absolutely magical with exquisite phrasing." Steve, an ASCAP Award winning songwriter, creates lyrics that touch the heart and speak to the soul with melodies that are both light-hearted and touching.
