All in the Family [Omni]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The Stonemans have a unique history that actually touches into three different centuries, amazingly enough, and it all hinges on Ernest "Pop" Stoneman, a 1920s hillbilly recording artist who brought his family into the act, and by the middle of the 1950s, the Stonemans (as a recording group) featured Pops and almost half of his 13 children.
