Roam the Country Through by Jeff Warner


Iíve been surrounded by traditional song for as long as I can remember. As a boy, and later as a teen, I was with my parents, Anne and Frank Warner, on some of their song-collecting trips in North Carolina and New York Stateís Adirondack Mountains. I learned first-hand the value rural singers placed on the songs passed down to them. Iím glad I got to meet people for whom old songs were their mainósometimes onlyómusic. Some of the songs on this album I learned from the singers my parents met, some from early country music recordings and most, I see, from friends along the way who had the same love of tradition that I did. Now, Iím proud to pass them on to new friends.

Tracks on the album are accompanied by:-
Jeff Warner: vocals, English concertina, banjo, guitar, jig-doll; Alice Jones: vocals, harmonium, piano, whistle;
Ben Paley: fiddle
