Waitin' for a Train

Waitin' for a Train

Bluegrass/country performer Bob Everhart recorded six albums for Folkways Records between 1978 and 1985. In his second recording for Folkways, Everhart, on 12-string guitar and harmonica, is backed by a traditional bluegrass ensemble of banjo, fiddle, dobro, mandolin and bass. Everhart wrote lyrics and music for 10 of the 13 compositions heard on this recording. His underlying musical theme is about the decline in the performance of traditional country music in favor of urban country music that was gaining in popularity in the mid-1970s.

Liner notes include song lyrics and Everhart’s commentary on each song in this collection.
