Summary
The material for these discs was culled out of eighty hours of field tapes. Some of the songways date back to ancient European or African origins. Others were created in the pioneer period. Still others were born yesterday. It is the merging of the creativity of the South, where country folk -- people of African and British descent -- continue to shape the deep songs of this country
