Description

Ghost Towns & Autumn Trails on CD

Gene Davenport is an expert on Bob Nolan and Sons of the Pioneers. For this album, he recorded several previously unheard Nolan songs like 'Vagabond Whirlwinds,' so fans and historians could hear these lost works for the first time. He also included a rare Tim Spencer composition, 'Where are You?' to give us another glimpse of work produced by the Pioneers that has been 'lost' for years. His love for the music of the singing cowboy and the West and it's history shows clearly in his own impressive compositions like the eerie 'Ghost Town,' the tribute to 'Remington' and the nostalgic 'A Faded Photograph.' You'll enjoy Gene's interpretations of the classics and his new, original compositions as well. -O.J. Sikes ******* Gene Davenport has been singing western songs ever since he was in high school. A few years ago, thanks to the magic of modern recording technology, he decided to try recording harmony with himself. 'Heck,' he says, 'people have often said that family members make the best harmony, and what's more family than yourself?' For seven years, Gene performed most week-ends at the Casey Jones Village in Jackson, Tennessee, one of the top ten tourist spots in Tennessee. A founding member of the trio OK Chorale, he has performed either solo or with the trio in Laughlin, Nevada, at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, and at the Western Music Festival in Tucson, Arizona. Gene also is a country and western music historian and has written some well-received songs of his own, as well as providing the music for Bob Nolan's lyrics on 'The High Sierras'. He puts bread and butter on the table by teaching religion at Lambuth University in Jackson, Tennessee. *** I have known Gene Davenport for a number of years as a scholar, a composer, a performer and a singer of classic western music and have always known him to be a man of great talent and integrity in every project he approaches. His music is a delight; faithful to the tradition while extremely creative within that tradition. Very very worthwhile checking out! -Ranger Doug.
