THE
HAMMONS
FAMILY

The Traditions
of a West Virginia Family
and Their Friends

OUT OF STOCK WITH MORE COMING SOON. WE WILL SHIP AS SOON AS THEY COME IN!

Released by Rounder.

$27



The Hammons Family is the landmark Library of Congress study of the music and way of life of a single West Virginia family. Producers Carl Fleischhauer and Alan Jabbour bring together musical performances, stories, and family history to depict the cultural life of the family. This double-CD set showcases rich traditions, including fiddle and banjo tunes, unaccompanied ballads and songs, stories both natural and supernatural, and riddles. The set incorporates two 1973 publications -- the original Library double-album and the Rounder LP Shaking Down the Acorns -- and adds new introductory material. Packaged in a slip-cased box, with 120-page booklet.
