adam tanner & frank lee

(2005)

Old time banjo and fiddle music from these two North Carolina musicians. 12 pieces from the archaic sounds of the South. All pieces feature fretless or fretted banjo and fiddle. Alternate tunings with all tunings included in the liner notes. These songs and tunes were learned from the original artist's recordings. The artists include Fiddling John Carson, Leadbelly, Clyde Davenport, Tommy Jarrell, Joe Birchfield, Garfield Akers, Emmet Lundy and Grayson and Whittier.

Slide banjo is featured on Dough Roller Blues, which he learned from an early recording of Garfield Akers and Joe Callicot. The two mule pieces come from the playing of Fiddling John Carson and the duo of Chitwood and Landress, all from Georgia.

"Frank Lee is one of old time music's great innovators. He plays a variety of banjos in his driving and unusual style. Frank, who was the driving force behind The Freight Hoppers is joined here by master fiddler Adam Tanner. Old time the way it should be played!"
