Howdy Forrester

John Hartford & Howdy Forrester Album Released

Spring Fed Records, the Grammy-winning documentary label operated by The Center for Popular Music at Middle Tennessee State University, announces the release of Home Made Sugar and a Puncheon Floor, a set of home recordings made by John Hartford and fiddling legend Howdy Forrester. This recording preserves a repertoire of many rare, old tunes that Howdy had learned as a boy from his Great Uncle Bob Cates in Hickman County, Tennessee. Hartford plays banjo, Forrester fiddles, and the two share informal discussion about the tunes and their sources.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
