Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line

Ola Belle Reed - Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line Due Aug 21

Ola Belle Reed and Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon LineDust-to-Digital is excited to present the first in-depth look at the life of Ola Belle Reed, a groundbreaking artist who is one of the all-time greatest performers of authentic, old-time music. Ola Belle Reed’s 1960s recordings, some of the earliest she ever made and available here for the very first time, are counter-balanced by a disc of modern-day field recordings of her descendants and those within her Appalachian community that she inspired. This deluxe edition highlights Ola Belle’s deep repertoire – folk ballads, minstrel songs, country standards, and originals – and traces the impact her music made and is still making today with 58 newly-remastered recordings and texts by Henry Glassie and Cliff Murphy.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
