About this product
- DescriptionWith an influx of Appalachian migrants who came looking for work in the 1940s and 1950s, Baltimore found itself populated by some extraordinary mountain musicians and was for a brief time the center of the Bluegrass world. Life in Baltimore for these musicians was t easy. There were missed opportunities, personal demons and always the up-hill battle with prejudice against their hillbilly origins. Based upon interviews with legendary players from the Golden Age of Baltimore Bluegrass, this book provides the first in-depth coverage of this transplanted-roots music and its broader influence, detailing the struggles Appalachian musicians faced in a big city that looked down on their poorest example of poor man's music.
- Author BiographyTim Newby is the features editor at Honest Tune Magazine and his work has appeared in a variety of magazines, both online and in print. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland, USA where he is an active part of the city's thriving live music scene.
