ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The True & Trembling String Band was formed in 1973 and performed regionally around Southern California until late 1976. The original band included Dick Owings, fiddle; Bob Webb, banjo; Allen Hart, banjo; Don McCarty, hammered dulcimer and mandolin; and Chris Cooper, guitar. Don McCarty was one of the first hammer dulcimer players on the West Coast to adapt that instrument to Southern Appalachian old-time music. Their repertoire drew from little-known old time songs and bands that had been recorded on 78 rpm recordings during the 1920s and '30s, and they were the first group to recreate the sounds of a then-obscure pre-Texas-swing band, the East Texas Serenaders.

In 1974, Hart left the band to enter the U.S. Army, and the remaining four continued to perform until late in 1975 or early in 1976 when they were joined by Dan Levitt on double-bass, and Bob McLeod on guitar. McLeod also brought his strong country-crooning voice to the group, which by that time was trending away from mountain string-band music toward the more modern stylings of Texas swing and early recorded "hillbilly" or country music. Afterwards, fiddler Dick Owings and banjo-player Webb continued as a duet, performing all along the West Coast as far north as Prince Rupert, British Columbia before disbanding at the beginning of 1978.
