Description

Starry Crown on CD

This is Rhys Jones' third CD on Vigortone and the first with his musical partner and wife, Christina Wheeler. They cover a lot of territory here, songs learned from old hillbilly 78s, timeless fiddle pieces gleaned from from LoC field recordings, songs and tunes learned from friends. All played brilliantly especially those breathtaking fiddle duets. 'Although everything on this disc is beautifully played, the real features here are the 9 twin fiddle duets by Jones & Ms. Wheeler that range from W.E. Claunch's GRUB SPRINGS to a knockout version of the Cajun HAPPY ONE-STEP that is eerily similar to the classic original by Dennis McGee and Sady Courville. The list of sources for the tunes on this disc reads like a Fiddler's hall of fame: William Stepp, Hiram Stamper, Marcus Martin, W.E. Claunch, as well as some great bands from the early 1930s: The Grinnell Giggers, Leake County Revelers and the Woodie Brothers. To their credit Wheeler & Jones avoid slavish imitation and play these classic tunes with skill and verve. The combination of great tunes and superb musicianship make this CD just about a "must" for old-time fiddle fans.' (County Sales Newsletter)
