Video Title:
Roscoe Holcomb - "On Top of Old Smokey" [Official Audio]
Description:
Listen to the official audio of Roscoe Holcomb's "On Top of Old Smokey" from the 1962 album 'Music of Roscoe Holcomb and Wade Ward' on Smithsonian Folkways. 'Music of Roscoe Holcomb and Wade Ward' is available on CD and digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/roscoe-holcomb-and-wade-ward/american-folk-old-time/music/album/smithsonian Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/7G0vsqPYClCNzMNNmaQ0kd?si=ZdENGAIhSymHqRHZZVa_EA This album presents two musicians whose experiences are similar—both play banjo, usually locally at community social functions, and come from farming backgrounds—but whose playing styles are noticeably different. Holcomb (from Daisy, Kentucky) plays wilder music, while Ward (from Independence, Virginia) has developed a smoother style.
