GUEST,aging cynic Old time, bluegrass, country essays (2) Old time, bluegrass, country ebook 19 Apr 12


I have a new ebook out of possible interest to Mudcatters. It's a collection of journalism from The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and many other places that includes essays and reviews about old time and bluegrass festivals, the demise of country music, the Carter Family, Ralph Stanley, Elvis, Rodney Crowell, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison and more. There are lots of non-musical pieces as well; topics include anti-alcohol hysteria, military deployment and remembering a family slave.

Here's the Amazon UK link:

These pages offer excerpts and the table of contents.
