Thanks for posting these historical recordings. Hearing the MD music from the past is such a joy.

BTW - When do you think these recordings were made?

God bless - Gretchen (PTL)

Gretchen, looks like the album came out in 1956, so sometime before that...???
see:

"During the summer of 1956, early revival artists Paul Clayton, Diane Hamilton and Liam Clancy made a collecting trip through parts of Virginia and North Carolina. On that historic recording journey, the young revivalists found such great rural artists as Piedmont guitarist Etta Baker, the Kossoy Sisters, and Edd and Nettie Presnell. The long out-of-print LP has been reissued this year on CD. "Instrumental Music of the Southern Appalachians" is a collection of great music that inspired the Library of Congress to follow up with recordings of many of the artists featured."
