Build Me A Boat

Build Me A Boat: Hart & Blech

Kerry Blech: fiddle
Sheila Blech: guitar and vocals
Allen Hart: clawhammer and fingerstyle banjo, vocals

More classic southern tunes from Seattle's premiere square dance band. Kerry & Sheila Blech and their friend Allen Hart have become what they most admire. Here they do 28 numbers (!) in an hour and twelve minutes, possibly a record, taken from the deepest parts of the Old Time Music tunebook. Fiddle tunes from the likes of Lee Triplett, Lon Jordan and Farmer Howell fit easily with the banjo repertoire of players like Joe Thompson, Dock Boggs and Rufus Crisp. You'd think you were sitting in a cabin on a mountainside in North Carolina... (Voyager Records)

Jim Taylor: vocals, guitar, hammered dulcimer, fiddle
Sheila Adams: old time banjo
Tóla Custy: Irish fiddle
Hillary Dirlam: bass, guitar
Doug Phillips: fiddle

A beautifully done album of songs that were about the Civil War or were popular during the Civil War era. Included is some string band music commonly played among the soldiers who fought in the War Between the States. Although it was one of the darkest times in American history, leaving scars on the nation that have never completely healed, the music gives us some insight into the hearts of the men and boys who fought. All of Jim Taylor's recordings have meticulous historical notes on the songs. (Pearl Mae Music)
