Product Description

There was an earlier “Close Kin” record not too long ago, also on the Mountain Roads label from Bristol, Tennessee, and featuring a mixture of Bluegrass and Old Time music.  The difference in the two CDs is that the earlier issue featured some well known stalwarts like Adam Steffey, Eddie Bond, Tim White and Johnnie & Jeanette Williams, while this new album is all sung and played by a younger group of musicians between the ages of 11 and 17  (and all of them from North Carolina and southwest Virginia).  You may not have heard of any of the young pickers here, but you most likely will in the near future.  16-year old Lindsey Nale of Galax, Va. handles most of the vocals and does a nice job.  There are eleven different musicians on this project, and they all comport themselves nicely on the well chosen dozen songs & tunes such as HELL BROKE LOOSE IN GEORGIA, TENNESSEE MOUNTAIN FOX CHASE, FORTUNE, ONE MORNING IN MAY, and THINGS I USED TO DO.  The youngest picker, 11-year old Kitty Amaral plays old time fiddle, as does 17 year old Levi Funk.  13 year old Madison Shepherd of West Jefferson, N.C. plays clawhammer banjo, and so on.

Though we hardly need a reminder, there are significant numbers of fine young musicians who happily are following in the footsteps of the early masters of Old Time and Bluegrass music.  A neat album, nicely packaged.
