Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Fink
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.

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.
