Product Description

Traditional Songs And Fiddle Tunes From The Toe River Valley

The Toe River Valley of western North Carolina has a rich heritage of traditional southern Appalachian music, yet it is little known to the wider world. Bruce Greene lives on the South Toe River in Yancey County, where he has been preserving and playing the music of friends and neighbors for nearly forty years. Here he sings and plays twenty-four songs and tunes he learned from elder musicians throughout the region, most of whom were born in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

  1. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2018

    I loved the old-time music and songs on this CD. I’m a big fan of the Foxfire books, and the music resonated along those lines. The production is first-rate, and the accompanying booklet is fun to read, for background on each piece. Received in two days after ordering from Compassion Books.

  2. full of heart and soul 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2017

    Nearly all the cuts are new to me. It opens a door to another world. Full of spirit and vernacular authenticity. Not stilted, heart felt and driving. I could listen to this all day.

  3. The real deal!!!! 5 Star Review

    Bruce Green captures the soul of the Toe River Valley. His immense talent singing, playing banjo and fiddle, is humbly applied to keeping these old tunes alive.
