Synopsis

Product Description
Kentucky was once blessed with an astonishing spectrum of regional fiddle styles, ranging from back country tunes carried in with the first wave of Scots-Irish immigrants, through bluesier pieces played by the black settlers of its farmlands, and reaching even to the quadrilles and cotillions once heard at the fancy dress balls of Lexington. This two volume set of field recordings, made between 1972 and 1995, samples the way the fiddle used to sing out at the dances of northeastern Kentucky. The present volume is devoted to the musical styles that were forged as mountain raftsmen carried their tobacco down the Licking River to the urban centers scattered along the Ohio's banks.
