Product Description

Traditional Songs And Fiddle Tunes From The Toe River Valley

‚ÄčThe 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. River In Time: A Great CD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2017

    A wonderful collection from the wealth of local traditional musics Bruce has lived among for most of his life. It is all beautifully handed on to fellow listeners, players and singers that they may in their turn keep it alive and be kept alive by it.

  2. Superlative Traditional Music from Bruce Greene 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2017

    A long-overdue solo album from Bruce! I'm fondest of the fiddling, but Bruce's banjo and vocal performances are also stellar.

  3. Lovely recording 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2017

    Really nice to hear a solo recording of Bruce Greene! His delivery of these old songs and tunes rings true.
