Milk 'Em in the Evening Blues

The McGee Brothers and Arthur Smith
Milk 'Em in the Evening Blues

The McGee Brothers, Sam (1894–1975) and Kirk (1899–1983), played as a musical duo for 50 years beginning in the mid-1920s. Steeped in the tradition of “old-time” string band music, Sam, on guitar, and Kirk, on banjo and fiddle, were joined in the 1930s with Arthur Smith on fiddle and banjo to form the Dixieliners. The McGees enjoyed a resurgence during the folk music revival of the late 1950s and early 1960s. During this period, musician Mike Seeger (The New Lost City Ramblers) reunited the McGees with Smith and in 1968 recorded their first album together. This is their only recording as a trio.
