GLoux New Lost City Ramblers (39) RE: New Lost City Ramblers 14 Nov 06


At the last Brandywine Mountain Music Convention (1993), the Brandywine Friends of Old-Time Music got them back together for a reunion concert, including Tom Paley, which was according to my sources, a miracle. The depth of their musicianship both individually and together is stunning, IMHO. But that's not even close to giving them the appreciation they deserve for everything else they've done for old-time music...they rescued it from oblivion and made it available in such a way that has inspired so many to appreciate it.

In addition to the NLCR recordings, be sure to check out the field recordings they've done over the years. For example, Mike Seeger's Close to Home on Smithsonian Folkways has recordings of Elizabeth Cotten, Kilby Snow, Tom Ashley, Wade Ward, Dock Boggs, Arthur Smith and the McGee Brothers, Eck Robertson, Sara Carter Bays and Maybelle Carter, and Snuffy Jenkins, among others.

Or John Cohen's High Atmosphere on Rounder has recordings by Lloyd Chandler, Dillard Chandler, Gaither Carlton (Doc Watson's Father-in-Law), Sidna Myers, Frank Proffitt, Dellie Norton, Fred Cockerham and E.C. Ball, among others.
