About this title:

Synopsis: Wayne Erbsen’s newest book takes a deep look at bluegrass music to uncover its true roots: ballads of early pioneers, Scots-Irish fiddle tunes, black spirituals, plantations melodies, blues, murder ballads, sentimental parlor songs from Tin Pan Alley, North Carolina banjo styles and gospel songs. The book is richly illustrated with over 100 vintage photos and includes lyrics, musical notation, chords, history and playing tips to 94 songs. There are also nearly 80 pages of history and profiles portraying important musicians including the Monroe Brothers, Carter Family, Bradley Kincaid, Riley Puckett, Charlie Poole, Wade & J.E. Mainer, Vernon Dalhart, Carolina Tar Heels, G.B. Grayson and Henry Whitter, Fiddlin’ Arthur Smith, Ernest V. Stoneman, Blue Sky Boys, Fiddlin’ John Carson, Coon Creek Girls, Earl Scruggs, Eck Robertson, Callahan Brothers, Samantha Bumgarner, Bill Monroe Zeke & Wiley Morris, Jimmie Rodgers and Stringbean. Optional CD by Wayne Erbsen and Laura Boosinger is available containing fourteen songs from the book.

About the Author: Wayne Erbsen's lifelong passion has been to research, collect, perform and preserve old time songs. He is Director of the Appalachian Music Program at Warren Wilson College in Swannonoa, North Carolina and president of Native Ground Music, which produces recordings and books on old time music. Wayne is an active teacher of banjo, fiddle, mandolin and guitar. He has been involved in early country and gospel music for over thirty years. As a teacher, writer, recording artist, and performer he has carried his music to all parts of the country and even to Europe. He now resides in North Carolina with his wife and three children.
