Description

Cousin Emmy & Her Kinfolks 1939-1947 on CD

Cousin Emmy was a fascinating and enigmatic entertainer from the golden age of early country radio; flamboyant, colorful & sassy (billing herself as "the first hillbilly star to own a Cadillac"), yet "down home" & sincere. She wrote one of the great bluegrass classics of all-time, "Ruby (Are You Mad at Your Man)?" & influenced many performers, like Grandpa Jones. She danced & sang her way into the hearts of everyone who ever saw or heard her perform. In her heyday, she was one of the best-known & most popular country performers with a career that spanned from the mid-1930s into the 1970s, including an appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, at the Smithsonian & as well at the Hollywood Bowl. She also was part of the 1966 European tour "The American Folk & Country Festival". She starred on Pete Seeger's TV show and was far more popular than her few albums might suggest. Includes many rare recordings and radio shows plus a 52 page detailed booklet.
