Overview

Drawing on the music from the isolated mountainous regions of North Carolina, Music From the Lost Provinces is an outstanding set of the area's many colorful talents. With many of these songs being the source material for string band revivalists, the New Lost City Ramblers in particular, this collection takes on a historical folklorist relevance. Excellently compiled liner notes go a long way in introducing such characters as 16-year-old Frank Blevins & His Tar Heel Rattlers and the Carolina Night Hawks, among many others. There is a certain surreal quality that transcends the folksy charm of songs like Jack Reedy & His Walker Mountain String Band's "Ground Hog" and Woodie Brothers' "Likes Likker Better Than Me" and "Chased Old Satan Through the Door." That's not to mention the impressive depth of intricate musicianship and powerful harmony singing displayed by these obscure masters. Everything adds up to make this a collection that no string band enthusiast should be without.
