Description

The Ohio River has long drawn settlers—including a very diverse group of musicians—to its banks for work, ready transportation, and natural beauty, creating one of the richest veins of folk music in the country. This FRC collection concentrates upon the varied and sophisticated fiddle tunes that were once unique to this region. It draws on some of the field work that we, along with Gus Meade, undertook over a span of several decades, to document the distinctive folk music along the Ohio River. We are pleased also to include some fine recordings that Barbara Edwards Kunkle made in the early 1970s. – Mark Wilson & John Harrod
