It is officially online.

Some of you have probably noticed some additional links on the community homepage. Over the last couple weeks, We have been working on a new webcast geared towards the mountain music of Appalachia. I assume it is fairly well known by folks here that the Celtic music we all know and love took on its own flavor when it hit the shores of America, a flavor that varied greatly depending on what part of the country one choose to settle down in. Perhaps the area of the country where the music remained the purist, has been in the hills and mountains of Virginia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and such. This "Mountain Music" is a special blend that one rarely hears about. Many of the songs are exactly the same Scottish and Irish tunes that are played on Highlander Radio, and others are slightly altered. Still more are songs unique to the geography and culture of the hills, yet with the same strong Celtic roots.

It is this brand of music that would then go on to spawn Bluegrass, Country & Western, and in turn via a marriage with Rock & Roll, the contemporary commercial country we know today. In an effort to document the rather neglected link between Celtic music and its country descendants, We have started "Mountain Legacy" devoted to the style of music born from the Immigrants who settled in the Appalachian Mountains.

Over time, I hope to collect additional material for the broadcast, and continue to purify its content. Also, the broadcast already includes the work of several Kentucky artists, including Homer Ledford, Jean Ritchie, Jennifer Rose, Ceol Cridhe, and Don Powell. It is my hope that we can showcase local talent from other surrounding states as time goes on. I hope you enjoy the broadcast, and feel free to contact me with any recommendations.

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Being from Georgia all my life (my dad grew up in the North Georgia mountains) and with ancestors from the Carolinas, Virginia, & Tennessee I welcome this forum. This is the music I "cut my teeth" on - my husband and I do a lot of southern appalachian type music and it is so neat to see where this music came from with its Scottish and Irish roots. Looking forward to listening. note.gif

Been listening and this is wonderful!

Love Joan Baez's Matty Groves.

So glad you started this. It is hard to find this kind of music.

You're doing a fantastic job with the selection. I love these old Child ballads in all their variations. It really is a missing link, and it makes wonderful specialty broadcast programming.

Really appreciate all your doing with this. I have always known about the link between Celtic and Bluegrass, but it's neat to be able to listen to it in this format and compare.

I know that Cherryholmes supposedly includes some kind of Scottish song on their albums to honor their heritage.

Keep up the good work!

I would love to hear you add (if you could get the permission, and I know I don't have a handle on what's involved) some of Buffy Saint-Marie's country renditions from her old Vanguard classic recordings -- Soulful Shade of Blue, Uncle Joe, Piney Wood Hills, Ground Hog, Ananias, Lyke Wake Dirge, Reynardine, Here I Sit With a Babe in Arms, Tall Trees in Georgia (so beautiful) . . .

I've got some of that on Vinyl I could add in.

Haynes: Thanks for the tip, I'll have to check that out.

Check out Kathy Mattea (A WVA native). I know you already have one of hers on, but she is really into Irish music and is putting some on her cd's. On Roses she has Isle of Inishmore, the air and jig and That's All the Lumber.

Something you might like to look into for a twist is some tracks from "The Folktellers" http://www.storywindow.com/stories_for_the_road.htm

I rememeber from the book Christy when she got up in the coves of North Carolina how surprised she was to hear songs of long ago kings of Scotland being sung by those who'd never been beyond their own mountain.

I have been listening quite a bit and really love what you've done A!! Great job!!

Over the last couple weeks, the active playlist has continued to grow slightly. With the remaining suggestions I have yet to investigate I don't doubt it'll grow further. I've been slightly tweaking the playlist rather frequently. Hopefully I'll be able to rotate things better as the station matures. For the month it's been online though, and the couple weeks since the official announcement. I'd say it has done quite well smile.gif
