My Folk Heart by Dix Bruce

CD $14.00

Additional Details

An energetic, entertaining, and sometimes irreverent romp through the rich world of American folk and old time music. Bruce plays flatpicked, fingerpicked, and slide guitar, mandolin, autoharp, and harmonica, solo and with guests Jim Nunally-guitar & vocals, Tom Rozum-vocals, and John Reischman-mandolin. Selections: “Gold Watch & Chain,” (cross picking); “Railroading on the Great Divide” (with Tom Rozum); and “The Coo Coo.” There’s plenty of hot and fast picking on “Mules, Mares, Bulls,” a medley of three old time and fiddle tunes; “Little Darling Pal” (with John Reischman); and “Bound to Ride” (with Jim Nunally). There’s lots of fun on lighter songs like the wonderfully ridiculous “Hot Corn, Cold Corn” (with Nunally); “I Wish I’d Bought Me a Half a Pint and Stayed in the Wagon Yard;” “Shake Sugaree;” and the not-so-subtle “single entendre” of “Tom Cat Blues.” Also included: “Milwaukee Blues,” fingerpicking medley “Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb” & “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” “Morning Blues” and autoharp medley “Redwing” and “Grandfather’s Clock.”
