Description
The string-band tradition is preserved with vim and vigor in this collection spotlighting North Carolina fiddler Tommy Jarrell (1901–85), whose technique and timbre continue to influence modern-day players of Appalachian old-time music (in particular the Round Peak style of the clawhammer banjo). In 1982 Jarrell was selected as one of 15 master folk artists in the first National Heritage Fellowships of the National Endowment for the Arts. The 13 songs here include "Tater Patch," "Lonesome Road Blues," "Chilly Winds," "Sourwood Mountain," "Train on the Island," "Little Brown Jug," and "Old Buck."

"Jarrell's fiddling and singing are typically powerful, plowing through a delectable (and mostly instrumental) mix of old-time dance music. But also worth noting are the exemplary playing of his sidemen, Andy Cahan and Chester McMillan. Cahan's claw-hammer banjo provides especially keen rhythmic drive, while guitarist McMillan subtly fills out the harmony. On top of this, Jarrell offers variation upon variation on such war-horses as 'Lonesome Road Blues' and 'Walking in My Sleep.' An occasional vocal creates a welcome contrast…. An essential item for old-time fans…. Each CD has lush annotation, revealing photos, and moving testimonials."—Country Standard Time
