HereÕs another among the ever growing number of excellent old-time bands that continue to spring up all over the countryÊ (this one is based in SouthwesternÊ Virginia).Ê There are 5 members of the group if you count Joseph DeJarnette, who plays bass on some cuts and also engineered the recording.Ê Sally Anne Morgan and Mike Gangloff share the fiddling, though the notes do not indicate what tunes each plays on.Ê On some of the banjo playingÊ it sounds like a gourd banjo is used, and one Nathan Bowles gets all sorts of interesting effects with washboard, bones, fiddlesticks and banjo.Ê The 14 songs and tunes are a good mixture, with proper credits given to the old timers that the group learned from, like Burl Hammons, Henry Reed, Oscar Wright, Wilson Douglas, Melvin Wine, and Tommy Jarrell. Fiddle and banjo tunings are supplied for each tune, and the notes by Mike Gangloff are to the point and sufficient.ÊÊ Tracks include ROLL ON JOHN, ELKHORN RIDGE, BANKS OF THE ARKANSAS, JACK OF DIAMONDS, CHARLESTON GIRLS, LITTLE ROSE, etc.ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ
