JABBOUR, REED, LEVY 'Henry Reed Reunion'

  • $13.50


A beautifully packaged 21-tune salute to the music of a legendary old-time fiddler, Henry Reed. The music is played by Alan Jabbour (fiddler) and Bert Levy (banjo) – two of the original members of the influential HOLLOW ROCK STRING BAND. They are joined on guitar by James Reed (Henry’s son), and every tune was learned from the repertoire of the elder Reed, who lived in Glen Lyn, Virginia, near the West Virginia line. I never got to see Reed, but from the enthusiasm & dedication shown by Jabbour in particular, he must have been a wonderful and compelling musician and person. We would say that this lovely set does justice to his memory. HIGH YELLOW, JAW BONE, JUMP JIM CROW, STONY POINT, SHOES & STOCKINGS, EBENEZER, FROSTY MORNING, FLOP EARED MULE, GEORGE BOOKER, REEL IN A etc.
