$12.00

This compilation features musicians from the region known as the Southern Appalachians. It includes musicians from deep in the mountains as well as from the foothills leading up to them. We have selected many of the recordings from the collection of Folkways Records founder, Moses Asch. On this release as on other recent ones, we have also begun to delve into some fine recordings from another source, the 43 years of recordings from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival (formerly Festival of American Folklife).
