  • Rising Sun Melodies: the Influential Life and Music of Ola Belle Reed - Free Download

    Ola Belle Reed (1946-2002) was a trailblazing force for women in bluegrass music, an Appalachian woman of hard-earned talent and generous ways who delivered honest music sung from the heart. Rising Sun Melodies, a new collection of her most influential songs alongside previously unreleased live performances, illustrates that time and again.

    Her songs "I've Endured," "High on the Mountain," "My Epitaph," and many others, now oft-covered standards in jam sessions and on recordings of far more-recognized performers, forge real-life experiences into music steeled with determination, family tradition, and commanding presence.
