Will Sweethearts Know Each Other There?
Posted in 1920s,Country on 11.26.07

If you are looking to donate to a charity this holiday season please consider The Music Maker Foundation – a charity located in North Carolina dedicated to helping blues musicians with living and health care expenses as well as giving them the opportunity to record music. There are several different ways to donate from monthly or quarterly reoccurring to one time donations and it goes to a wonderful cause.

more information here.

By request here are two Dock Boggs recordings from his first two recording sessions in the late 1920s. Boggs recorded a handful of songs in the 20s before the economic times forced him back into the coal mines where he worked most of his life. He would recorded again in the mid 60s for Folkways, a few songs from that sessions are on this website. According to Amazon this disc is now out of print and fetching some crazy prices, so I might upload a few more tracks from to save some folks a few bucks.
