To listen to the Bashful Mountain Broadcasters, youâd
swear they were all sixty-years old and had never set
foot out of the Appalachians. Thatâs how well they
handle the authentic, real-deal, old time string band
music: like theyâve been doing it all their lives.

When you hear their debut CD on Old 97 Wrecords (#007),
you step out of a time machine into rural Tennessee, somewhere about 1922. Itâs a hot day and you sure could use a drink of cold spring water. It wouldnât hurt if you could have a big plate of purple hull peas, cornbread, turnip greens, fried potatoes and ham, too. Well, thatâs what you get when the Bashful Mountain Broadcasters play. It will fill your stomach, satisfy your soul and put you back behind the plow for another five acres.

This ainât your daddyâs bluegrass. Itâs way before all
that. Bill Monroe would have heard these tunes when he
was a baby and itâs even money that his Uncle Pen knew
âem from when he was a boy. When they do âGoing Across The Sea,â you can hear the ships leaving the west of Ireland in 1849. They gently correct the Kingston Trio with the real story of âTom Dooleyâ and they show you just what a desperate man âJohn Hardyâ was. âReubenâ tells of true love, moonshining and train wrecks. And if you prefer your
tragic romance played out like an English step dance,
âMattie Groveâ is for you. Itâs all as polished like a pocket watch and primative as a mule.

This is hi-fi and low-tech all at once. Nothing at
work here except steel strings, calf hide, horsehair
and wood, yet electricity comes out of it. Go figure.
Better yet, go listen. And if you donât break a smile
or tap a toe, youâd better check yourself for a pulse.
