Description

The Music of the Great Smoky Mountains. This contemporary music captures the dignity of our American ancestry and heralds a vision of hope for the future Emmy award-winning composer Gary Malkin paints the Smokies in orchestral colours, adding touches of mountain fiddle, Native American drums, and piano notes as soft and bright as raindrops. Appalachian melodies drift through like figments, presences from another time. A nostalgic solo flute calls out above shadowed cards, then soars over vast panoramas, propelled by distant drums. Evocative and deeply inspiring, this contemporary music captures the dignity of our American ancestry and heralds a vision of hope for the future.

    OLD-TIME SMOKY MOUNTAIN MUSIC–In 1939 Joe Hall lugged some early recording equipment around the Great Smoky Mountains with the purpose of capturing the real music of the Smokies before it was changed forever. It was a tumultuous time when hundreds of families were leaving or had left their mountain farms to make way for the creation of the new national park.
