J.E. Mainer's Mountaineers - Run Mountain

CAT. #: 456


Price: $15.00

CD 456

One of the great mountain fiddlers, J.E. Mainer also played old-timey banjo and was a fine singer and entertainer. J.E. gained his initial fame in the mid-1930s with his brother Wade but continued to play music his entire life. In the early 1950s when he recorded for the King label, his children joined the "family band." These 1963 recordings present J.E.'s family at their energetic best!

REVIEW

“. . . [J.E. Mainer’s Mountaineers] played what we now call old-time music, and you can hear the roots of bluegrass in their sound . . . Mainer and crew provide over 70 rousing minutes of rambunctious fiddle tunes, charming old songs, and a few gsospel numbers. These down-home performances are loads of fun, and highly recommended.”
