Red Allen, Frank Wakefield and the Kentuckians

Allen and Wakefield's music ranges from strictly traditional songs like "Little Maggie" to pieces introduced by Bill Monroe to sacred material, all with their hallmark close harmonies and tight instrumental backing. Like Monroe and Roscoe Holcomb, Allen's voice embodies the "high lonesome" sound.
