American roots music shines in this program of songs and tunes running the gamut from fast and lively, to slow and lovely, to haunting and plaintive. The familiar Turkey in the Straw and Arkansas Traveler or the not so familiar Grub Springs, Shove that Pig’sfoot a Little Farther into the Fire, and John Brown’s Dream might have some in the audience on their feet and dancing. Songs such as Goin’ to the West, Coo Coo Bird, and Sow ‘Em on the Mountain capture the essence of old-time music. The beautiful sound and versatility of the dulcimer shine in this captivating performance.
