  • $20.00


RAINBOW QUEST featuring the Stanley Brothers and Doc Watson. Back in the mid 1960’s folk singer Pete Seeger hosted a TV series over New York’s public television station, bringing in guests from the folk music world. The Shanachie label has arranged to re-issue (in DVD format) the few shows in this series that remain of interest to Bluegrass and old-time music fans. All in all, this issue is the most recommended, as it presents two of the most interesting of the hour-long shows. Doc Watson, who was relatively newly “discovered” at the time, is joined by Clint Howard and Fred Price in a warm & wonderful, relaxed hour of old-time music. Then we have some precious footage of the Stanley Brothers, who had stopped briefly in New York on their way to a series of concerts in West Germany. The late Cousin Emmy was also part of this show, doing 4 numbers. This is some of the only professional film footage of Carter Stanley, who died less than a year after these shows were filmed. Chick Stripling, George Shuffler, and fiddler Don Miller made up the rest of the Clinch Mt. Boys in this highly recommended DVD.
