Tapestry of the Times #16: The Country Gentleman; The New Lost City Ramblers; J.D. Short; Joe Hunter; Bill McAdoo; Lucy Stewart; Clyde "Kindy" Sproat

Tapestry of the Times #16

The lightning-fast fingers of banjo picker Eddie Adcock and The Country Gentlemen, Saint Louis blues from the legendary JD Short, a work-song sung by the inmates of a Texas prison camp, a chant learned in a trance by an Eskimo medicine man, a melody from the mountains of North Sumatra, and much more. Real music, real people, and the stories behind the sounds.
