Dock Boggs, Vol. 3

Dock Boggs, Vol. 3

Moran "Dock" Boggs, miner and musician, was first recognized for his "unorthodox" playing style. His popularity only grew after he was featured on the Anthology of American Folk Music (SFW40090) in 1952 and made Boggs one of the most influential musicians in America. This third installment of Boggs’ music on Folkways includes the classics "Turkey in the Straw" and the haunting "Prayer of a Miner’s Child." Extensive liner notes accompany this album and include facsimiles of some of Boggs’ original handwritten lyrics.

EN ESPAÑOL

Moran ”Dock“ Boggs, minero y músico, fue reconocido primero por su estilo de tocar ”poco ortodoxo“. Su popularidad creció sólo después de que apareció en Anthology of American Folk Music (Antología del folclor musical Americano) (SFW40090) en 1952, lo que hizo de Boggs uno de los músicos más influyentes de Estados Unidos.

Esta tercera entrega de la música de Boggs en Folkways incluye los clásicos ”Turkey in the Straw“ y la inquietante ”Prayer of a Miner’s Child“ (Oración del hijo de un minero). Notas extensas acompañan este álbum e incluyen copias de algunas de las letras originales manuscritas por Bogg.
