Appalachian Bride - Stuart Mason

  • Sale
  • Regular price $15.00


An 'oldternative' to traditional mountain music, Stuart Mason offers up spine-tingling original songs as well as foot-stomping fiddle tunes. The earthy twang of a homemade banjo as it's frailed in the old mountain style. The ringing song of a wood thrush from deep in a West Virginia laurel thicket. The slap of leather soles on a hardwood dance floor at the local parish hall. Stuart Mason takes the listener on an autobiographical journey into the West Virginia mountains of his birth. The record features his award-winning traditional singing on original and traditional pieces with acoustic guitar, mandolin, and clawhammer banjo. Blazing fiddlers Gilles Apap, James Wimmer, and John Weed lend a hand, as well as Jonas Richardson on harmonica, Duane Inglish on accordion, and Bruce Powers on hammered dulcimer.
