The Civil War Collection

The Civil War Collection: Jim Taylor
Instrumental Music of the Southern Appalachian Mountains

Jim Taylor: hammered dulcimer, guitar
Sheila Barnhill: banjo
Bruce Green: fiddle
Tom Draughon: guitar

A combination of two recordings: The Falls of Richmond and Little Rose Is Gone. Traditional Instrumental Music from the southern Appalachian Mountains. The hammered dulcimer lends a certain refinement to the usually raucous string band sound. We like the accompanying booklet of careful, researched liner notes that details the history behind the tunes. Originally done as two separate cassettes, this material is now available on a 70 minute CD. Jim Taylor, from Marshall, NC, is a Civil War reenactor as well as a fine hammered dulcimer player.
