Hand-Me-Down Music: Old Songs, Old Friends - Vol. 2 Traditional Music of Union County, North Carolina

The second of two recordings in the Hand Me Down Music series, this collection of traditional folk music is performed by local North Carolina musicians and singers who learned the songs and lyrics from previous generations. The collection includes both secular and religious songs—and one song, “Amazing Grace,” Sung both ways. The first version is performed by Horace Helms and Shady Grove Partners as a brief bluegrass rendition, and the second by the CJ Evans Gospel Choir from the Nice Grove Baptist Church as a hymn.
