The classic old timey story of that pesky outlaw, featuring Connie Woodring’s vocals, Dick Mann on Banjo, Paul Krause on mandolin, and Bob Scarr on bass. This version echo’s the classic sound of the folk narrative in Appalachian music.
Written in Your Eyes
This newgrass original written by PK Krause, our mandolin player features blistering mando breaks juxtaposed with Dick Mann’s melodic claw hammer banjo. One listen to the bass line and you’ll know why Bob quit Julliard in his junior year.
You can almost smell the smoke rising from a chimney way back in the holler. This classic begins in a traditional style with Connie’s haunting vocals and Dick’s old timey banjo. Just when you think you’ve got it, that banjo and PK’s mandolin take you on a musical jamming sidetrip you never saw coming!
The Dreadful Snake
That old late 40’s tale of woe is new again with a classical spin and some tasty mandolin licks. Mr. Monroe would approve.
Sittin on Top of the World
It started life in the 20’s as a blues standard. Now you can here it mountain style! Listen real close and you can here some tasty slide guitar by our guest, Jim Roney, a legend among slide players who really know.
Rollin in My Sweet Baby’s Arms
A rollicking good bluegrass number with Dick and PK trading licks, and Connie and Dick singing.
Ask some of the older fella’s and they’ll tell you nobody’s really sure where this old timey banjo song came from, but they’re sure this ain’t it! Is that fiddle a fiddle or is that fiddle a harmonica? You tell me!
Sit at Home
Connie shows her bluesy side on this old standard with a slightly different flavor. It must be from western Appalachia.
What collection of mountain music would be complete
without this one. Rumor has it that there was a jug of shine involved with the recording session, but more likely it was clear mountain spring water.
Sounds of Loneliness
Connie sings this classic Julie Miller tune in a style that conjures up visions of sunset on a quiet mountaintop far from the city.
