Description
"Dance All Night," one of the 14 tracks on this 1995 reissue, could have been its title. A Terpsichorean delight, the CD also includes "Sail Away Ladies," "Silly Bill," "Old Suzanna," "Big Liza Jane," "Sugar in the Gourd," "Fisher's Hornpipe," "Big Liza Jane," "Home Sweet Home," and "Mississippi Sawyer." (A town in Southwestern Virginia, Galax is a nexus of mountain music traditions.)

"Russell plays in the so-called Galax style, which means the dulcimer has all of its four strings tuned to D and a noter is used to fret them in a slide style, allowing her to generate a good deal more speed and projection than the instrument usually demonstrates…. Traditional tunes like the fiery 'Ebeneezer,' 'Cindy,' and 'Flop Eared Mule,' all songs usually associated with the fiddle, fly by in rapid succession, and even songs usually assigned to the ballad tradition, like the venerable 'John Hardy,' chime along at a danceable pace. Every track is rapid and bright, and fluid as cold spring water."—All Music Guide
