This fine duo, after several lovely albums of old-time songs for the Rounder label, is now to be heard on Appalseed with this equally impressive collection of 12 songs from the work of the Carter Family.Ê We are quickly reminded of the variety and richness of repertoire of A. P. , Sara, & Maybelle Carter --- Jody & Kate have picked out some gems, but were there any bad Carter Family songs?Ê Stecher & Brislin do not copy the exact Carter Family formula that featured Maybelle's wonderful guitar work on every song, but rather lend their own arrangements, which sometimes include mandolin or somewhat different guitar styles.Ê Still the prime selling point of the duo's work is their soulful singing, and it's a pleasure to hear their versions of the songs.Ê A superior album, and recommended.
