Washboard Band - Country Dance Music

Washboard Band - Country Dance Music

Pete Seeger, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee FW02201 / FA 2201

Pete Seeger writes, "It is amazing how its ‘clickety, tick, pling clunk, punk, clonk' can cut through all the noises of a crowded dance floor." This celebration of the washboard's raspy rhythm features rousing tunes played by Seeger, William Edward Cook, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, and Frank Robertson.
