    This compelling anthology covers the decade spanning 1926 to 1936 when electric recording equipment first crossed paths with the old-time music of North Carolina. Released by the comprehensive vintage-ophiles at Old Hat Records, the collection features a panoply of old time artists and styles from murder ballads, gospel songs, string bands, fiddle tunes, and even artists influenced by Tin Pan Alley and ragtime. Perfect for academics, old-time lovers, and those curious about early century Tar Heel culture, IN THE PINES provides a perfect sepia-toned snapshot of one of Depression-era America's frothiest musical communities.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Wire (p.54) - "[A] fascinating collection of old-time songs from the Tar Heel State....Strands of history and the shifting sands of social interaction are audible through this unassuming and enjoyable music."
