CD 9003

Featuring Mike Seeger, Alice Gerrard, Hazel Dickens, Tracy Schwarz and Lamar Grier. The Strange Creek Singers were a group of friends who made these recordings between 1968 and 1970. They also happened to be some of the best known names in Old Time and Bluegrass Music. Mike Seeger is from the famous Seeger family and is a mainstay of Old Time Music; Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard went on to form Hazel and Alice, one of the most influential female vocal groups in Bluegrass and Old Time Music; Tracy Schwarz was in the New Lost City Ramblers, along with Mike, and continues as a force in Old Time and Cajun Music; and banjo picker Lamar Grier gained his fame playing with Bill Monroe and added his Scruggs style banjo to these sessions although he no longer performs today.

“Although there is considerable instrumental ability here, it's the singing that really makes the album - solos, duets, trios, and quartets that are just terrific. The general style is bluegrass, but includes old-time songs, hymns, original numbers, and songs by modern country writers. No room here to describe all the good things on this record; each track brings new combinations - banjo duets, fiddle duets, new vocal groupings, etc. Let me just mention Tracy Schwarz's very tragic-funny 'Poor Old Dirt Farmer' and the album's tour-de-force, Hazel Dickens' unaccompanied ballad 'Black Lung.' A great record.”
