A celebration of old-time music in the Mountain State of West Virginia, some of the people passing it on, knee to knee, one generation to another.

Produced by WVPB filmmaker Russ Barbour and narrated by Mountain Stage’s Larry Groce, this new documentary examines old-time music, specifically in the hills and valleys of Appalachia, especially in the Mountain State and particularly in Clay County, home to some of West Virginia’s most distinguished practitioners.

The documentary also considers the homogenization of customs and music culture; the impact of the American Folk Revival; rediscovery of old-time musicians; the arrival of back-to-the-landers in Appalachia; growing popularity of old-time music festivals.

Another good one, but it is only available on CD is Legends of Old Time Music. I bought it last week.

This is a great DVD with some of the heroes of old-time music in rare performances that have been preserved on film.

A 22 page booklet featuring biographical material, rare photographs, and details on the tunes performed on this DVD can be downloaded once the DVD is purchased.

Here is one clip from the DVD I found on YouTube...the only clip I could find from the DVD.
