now playing: Jody Stecher & Kate Brislin
Songs of the Carter Family
Songs of Maybelle, AP, and Sarah Carter are known all over the world in many variations. California based folk singers Stecher and Brislin respect the mystery and the musicality behind the straightforward on the surface songs. In some ways, it’s like touching a well worn stair rail, the lines and melodies are so familiar, but the fresh wood roughness of new construction is there too. Tracks include Away Out on the Old Saint Sabbath, Dark and Stormy Weather, and River of Jordan.
