These two tracks are from a three part series for PBS called The Appalachians. The brilliant Phylis Geller produced this under the guiding hand of MariLynn Evans. Sam Green and Barbara Burst edited. The best part of this was putting together an all-star string band: Bob (Sparky) Spates on fiddle and mandolin, Chris Kosky on bass, and Paul Bell on his various guitars. I played the banjo (yes…. who knew?). The recordings were all done at Cue Recording Studios in Falls Church, VA with Ken Shubert engineering. The show premiered on Nashville Public Television in March 2005.
