Various Artists
Dark Holler: Old Love Songs and Ballads

These milestone 1960s Folkways recordings of soul-searing Appalachian ballads brought new respect for the time-worn tradition of solo song. Their power to reach deep inside us with stories of love, betrayal, and tragedy dispels the notion that ballad singers are detached and unemotional. An extraordinary bonus DVD of John Cohen's classic film The End of an Old Song brings to life the earthy existence of balladeer Dillard Chandler of Madison County, North Carolina, featured on 14 of the 26 tracks reissued here for the first time. 36-page booklet. 26 tracks, including 4 unreleased performances. 72 minutes. Please note: the DVD video material is not included with a digital download purchase.
