Old Love Songs & Ballads from the Big Laurel, North Carolina

Compiled from field recordings made in 1963, this album offers a view of musical life in the Laurel River region of North Carolina, where dances and "workings"—days of common labor followed by evenings of merriment—were once common. Anecdotes in the liner notes from the singers bring the world of Big Laurel to life.
