“I’ve seen the rural music I’ve loved since childhood grow fainter and farther away in a commercial and urbanized society that seems to care little for the charms of old-fashioned southern string music and its long-gone practitioners…. Here are some of the old songs I play and sing around home…one can live by the sentiment and poetry found in many of them.”
-Norman Blake

Named in honor of the Alabama Great Southern Railway, Green Light on the Southern is a collection of seventeen recordings from acclaimed American roots musician Norman Blake. Mostly traditional selections, they represent several songs Blake has known since his boyhood. Authentic string band music caringly performed, Green Light... features Blake (and at times, his wife Nancy) playing the music with which he is most at home.
