I Bid You Goodnight

The Old Time String Band was an all-female band composed of musicians who played a variety of string instruments, from guitar, fiddle, and banjo to mandolin, Dobro, and bass. The band’s repertoire featured music from the first half of the 20th century and included songs written by Bessie Smith, Woody Guthrie, Ma Rainey, the Carter Family, and a Cajun song or two. The band even covers a song performed by Bing Crosby in the movie Blue Skies (“I’ll See You in C-U-B-A”). This CD contains all the music from the band’s two Arhoolie recordings.
