Folk Visions and Voices: Traditional Music and Song in Northern Georgia - Vol. 2

Beginning in 1977, folklorist Art Rosenbaum traveled around northern Georgia making field recordings of singers who learned their music from the oral tradition. The outcome was a two-volume anthology and a book by the same title. The first half of Volume 2 features "black frolic songs, work songs and blues," to the accompaniment of guitar, banjo, harmonica, and fiddle. The second half features white "string band music, banjo tunes and songs." Rosenbaum's liner notes provide detailed information about the singers and each song, as well as song lyrics and photographs of the musicians and singers.
