about

The various banjo players on this CD capture both the sound of Alleghany banjo playing, an open, strongly rhythmic style, and the changing music of the times from turn of the century clawhammer to the roots of bluegrass. Most of the recordings were made by Cliff Evans, a local jeweler and guitar player, who recorded a wide variety of local musicians from the 1950’s-1970’s and whose voice you’ll hear occasionally introducing the tunes. Cliff was J.H. Evans’s son and Louis’s nephew. Many thanks to the Evans family for sharing their father’s rich collection. – Lucas Pasley
