Guitarist and vocalist Norman Blake is a treasure of old-time American music whose sweeping repertoire includes fiddle tunes, country songs, rags and traditional ballads. He has also been widely heard as a session guitarist with everyone from Bob Dylan to Robert Plant/Alison Krauss. With cellist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Nancy Blake, and often with fiddler James Bryan, Norman Blake creates new music of exquisite beauty that resonates with the authority of tradition. Here are ten recordings made for the Rounder and Flying Fish Records, hand-picked by the Blakes themselves.
