Songs of the Old Regular Baptists, Vol. 2: Lined-out Hymnody from Southeastern Kentucky

The oldest English-language religious music in oral tradition in North America, the lined-out, congregational hymnody of the Old Regular Baptists is heard in the heart of the coal-mining country of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. In this rare, beautiful, and heartfelt music lie the roots of the high, lonesome mountain sound of elaborate melodic turns and graces. Produced in collaboration with the Indian Bottom Association of Old Regular Baptists, this is the second of two Smithsonian Folkways albums devoted to their music; the first was SFW CD 40106.
