Overview

This collection mixes veterans of old-timey music with younger advocates of the style, and the result is a delightful sampler for the music and for Rounder Records, which has supported things by issuing albums by most of the musicians included here. Among the high points are guitarist Etta Baker's classic "One Dime Blues," Will Keys' beautiful banjo piece, "Waltz Kitty Waltz," and the dual banjos of Jody Stecherand Kate Brislin's "Elkhorn Ridge." Kirk Sutphin's banjo and fiddle piece, "Old Time Back Step Cindy," has a fluid beauty, while Joe & Odell Thompson bring a wild, archaic fiddle and banjo sound to "Rya's House." There is a wonderful energy and grace to this music, which battles constantly to keep from being subsumed by the more modern bluegrass styles, and Rounder Records deserves kudos for helping to keep it alive.
