Banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, voice: if you like the sound of old time American music, you’ll have a good time with this episode of Rise When the Rooster Crows. Old time music is older than Bluegrass and older than the recording industry. Its roots include the fiddle tunes of Ireland and Scotland, the banjo music of Africa, and great traditions of balladry and dance. Even though the music is old, it lives on and is still played by people all over the world, not so much for the business of music, but for the love of making and sharing music as a community.
Local and regional artists in this episode include: Coty Hogue; Flat Mountain Girls; Smoke Creek; Foghorn Stringband; Merritt Herring; Shanghaied On The Willamette; Clyde Curley And The Oxymorons; Jere Canote; Laura Love; The Gypsy Gyppo String Band; Tim Connell & Eric Skye.
