BONNIE RUSSELL & THE RUSSELL FAMILY 'Mountain Dulcimer, Galax Style' CO-2710-CD

Add To Wishlist

In the 20 odd years since this music was recorded by Charlie Faurot & Rich Nevins, this wonderful album has come to be considered a classic. Here it has been re-issued with the inclusion of two extra tunes that had been thought lost: DANCE ALL NIGHT and LITTLE LIZA JANE. Bonnie Russell was just 13 when she recorded this lively strummed dulcimer music, beautifully backed by her brother & late father, Roscoe Russell. It is a unique documentation of an exciting and rare local tradition (actually from the Woodlawn area near Galax & Hillsville, VA). Lovely treatment of classic tunes that any lover of old-time music should thoroughly enjoy. SAIL AWAY LADIES, CINDY, BIG LIZA JANE, EBENEEZER, HOME SWEET HOME, MISSISSIPPI SAWYER, OLD SUZANNA, FLOP EARED MULE.
