Description

Give Me the Roses on CD

Singer/songwriter and traditional musician Allison Williams plays old-time clawhammer banjo in a modern context. A native of the Arkansas Ozarks, Allison got her start as a punk rock musician before rediscovering her musical roots. Several years in the mountains of North Carolina educated her in Southern banjo styles, especially the fast, distinctive styles of Hobart Smith and Wade Ward. In 2005 she formed the Forge Mountain Diggers, a hard-driving oldtime band, with Freight Hoppers fiddler David Bass. The Diggers toured internationally for three years, sharing stages with the Grascals, Uncle Earl, Rhonda Vincent, Donna the Buffalo, and many other giants of the new traditional music scene. Allison Williams' solo CD ' Give Me the Roses' came out in autumn of 2008, featuring driving arrangements of traditional old-time songs, as well as eclectic originals, woven together by a talented backing band of rising stars: alumni of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Old Crow Medicine Show, and the Wiyos, among others. She will be touring in February 2009 with West Virginia champion fiddler Chance McCoy. 'Accomplished and exuberant.' -The Observer (U.K.) 'Strong original material and brilliant interpretations of classic old time.' -Bluegrass Unlimited.
