Here is another good example of the fine old time string band music that continues to pour out of the southern mountain area around Galax, Va. and Surrey County, N.C. Fore, who appears to be in his mid 30s, plays a good clawhammer banjo on a very nice collection of 19 tunes common to the area, such as LET ME FALL, JOKE ON THE PUPPY, FORTUNE, ROUSTABOUT, STILLHOUSE, OLD JIMMY SUTTON, FALL ON MY KNEES, etc. He is joined on guitar and fiddle by a stellar array of musicians well known in the area, including Benton Flippen, Bobby Patterson, Kirk Sutphin, Chester McMillan, Eddie Bond, Mac Snow and Katie Golding. It is clear from the playing that Fore has learned a lot from the music of Kyle Creed, Tommy Jarrell and Fred Cockerham among others. A very nice project here.
