In Sacred Trust: The 1963 Fleming Brown Tapes

In Sacred Trust: The 1963 Fleming Brown Tapes

On this album of never-before-released work, mountain music virtuoso Hobart Smith (1897-1965) plays banjo, fiddle, guitar, and piano in addition to singing, clog-dancing, and reminiscing. Taped by fellow banjo player Fleming Brown shortly before Smith died, he brings us back to a vanished era in these deeply personal recordings. 80-page book with historical photos, lyrics, and two tablatures. 36 tracks. 72 minutes. Produced and annotated by Stephen Wade.
