A  CD of Old-Time Music
Clayton Jones and Angelee Krieger

Read a review of this CD at The Banjo Hangout web site

A broad selection of 15 Old-Time songs and tunes, including toe-tapping
southern Appalachian dance tunes, intricate melodic clawhammer pieces,
some fine and seldom heard reels with roots in the Celtic tradition,
 a superb northeastern tune learned from a master fiddler in Maine, 
 nonsense songs, and one of the  old 14th century Child ballads.


Clayton plays banjo  and Angelee plays guitar on everything except
Pigeon on the Gatepost and Rudy's Reel.  On those tunes
Angelee plays mandolin and Clayton plays guitar.
