Description
With many of them quite flowing and lyrical, these compositions exhibit the guitar as a particularly well-rounded instrument for expressive, solo performance. All of the defining characteristics of the parlor guitar genre are here: open tunings, the use of three and four fingers, arpeggios, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, and harmonics. Many of the tracks have never been available commercially, and except for E.C. Ball's two self-recordings, all of the songs were recorded at the homes of the four guitarists: in northwest Missouri, the Arkansas Ozarks, the plains of Coryell County, Texas, and the southwest mountains of Virginia.

"19th-century parlor guitar was the foundation or an influence for the playing of early rural guitar players as diverse as Elizabeth Cotten and Sam McGee. Probably even the early blues players. This CD presents some of the last players of this rarely recorded style."—Mike Seeger
