Product Notes

Civil War enthusiasts will be captivated by the unfolding story of the Allegheny Mountain campaigns of early 1861 punctuated by lively West Virginia fiddle tunes and songs, cradled in the ambient sounds of the surrounding country side. Digitally recorded interviews with Pocahontas and Randolph County West Virginia elders detail memories of their families' first-hand encounters in historic battles and their efforts to carry on daily life amidst the bloody War. The social divisions, passions and violence of the era left deep traces among the citizens of the new war-born state of West Virginia still resonating in recollections of their aging descendents. This production will engage listeners through it's action-packed account of the Civil War in western Virginia, told by those who carry the tales forth from earlier times. 'An important recording depicting Civil War life in our state along this important turnpike. Great readings, tunes and musicianship.' - John Blisard, West Virginia musician and professional involved in music performance and production.
