Album Review

This collection of traditional mountain tunes allows Mike Seeger and Paul Brown to show off their fine taste in source material as well as their accomplished musicianship on everything from the autoharp to a trump (what's commonly called a Jew's harp). Extensive notes detail the duo's song selections and what each musician played from tune to tune, but the performances aren't as academic as the notes suggest. By staying true to traditional performance styles, Seeger and Brown capture an old-time spirit that remains engaging and enjoyable today. Recommended to fans of Harry Smith's folk music anthologies.
