Description

(From the collection of Ray Alden)

Fiddler Byard Ray and his banjo picking cousin Obray Ramsey were “discovered” during the folk revival of the 1960s at the Asheville Folk Festival in North Carolina. The time of their discovery coincided with the psychedelic rock period, which led to their music being incorporated in the rock movie western “Zachariah.“ This concert, recorded in NYC, was part of a tour to promote their LP recording “White Lightning,” which used a band of studio musicians. Fortunately for us this lovely concert on this CD featured Obray Ramsey and Byard Ray, accompanied only by guitar, doing home-based traditional songs and instrumentals. – Ray Alden
