Virginia Traditions/Blue Ridge Institute recordings
« on: June 09, 2015, 03:08:45 PM »
Johnm just posted a song by James Lowry from the Virginia Traditions in the "what is this musician doing?" thread. This reminded me that the Virginia Traditions series of CDs is now being offered by Smithsonian Folkways as custom CDs or downloads. These had become harder to find, so good news. There's some great music on the ones I've heard. More info here:

And scans of the original  liner notes are available in PDF form as downloadable files.

The series of LPs from back in the day, all (Black and White) are excellent - produced by Kip Lornell and Roddy Moore mainly from BRI material. (the Pernell Charity cuts are from me.)

As Peter will appreciate, being an old Virginia boy, I like the way they separated out the regions of the state in putting together the records. More stuff to put on the list.
