Been Riding with Old Mosby

Frank Bode with Tommy Jarrell and Paul Brown
Been Riding with Old Mosby

Old-time musician Frank Bode sings and plays guitar on this 1984 album of traditional American rural music. He is joined on the recording by banjo picker Paul Brown and legendary fiddler Tommy Jarrell, who sadly passed away just four months later. From murder ballads to songs of moonshiner tales to the blues, this album attests to the richness of a rural tradition passed down from generation to generation. Liner notes include song lyrics and an introduction to each track, including its origins and how it came into the perfomers’ lives.
