While many extant photos of string band artists show members holding a mandolin, it often can barely be heard in most period recordings because the most important instrument to capture was usually the fiddle or voice. This collection provides you with the opportunity to learn over 70 old-time-music period songs recorded mostly by Ernest Stoneman, or the duo Grayson & Whitter, during the 1920s and early 1930s. Many of these songs were also “covered” by other string bands regardless of whether they had the opportunity or not to be commercially recorded. CD tracks of some of the songs in this collection as recorded by a number of different string band artists are provided so that performances can be compared.
