Synopsis

Album 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 music of the little communities that dot the Kentucky River as it winds its way down from the ragged canyons of Wolfe County to the gently rolling hills of the inner Bluegrass state.
