Hi, there... This page is part of the Slipcue guide to old-timey musicians, both old and new. This old-timey guide is part of a much larger Hick Music website. This "guide" is not meant to be comprehensive or authoritative, just a quick look at a few records I've heard recently, as well as some old favorites. Comments, corrections and/or recommendations are are always welcome!
This page covers the letter "E"
East Texas Serenaders "Complete Recorded Works: 1927-1937" (Document, 1998)
A pretty remarkable set of Depression-era music with hot fiddling and a strong rhythmic bounce that anticipates the jazz-hick fusion of western swing while still showing the style's deep roots in the old-time stringband sound. This is a really cool record, with lots of music that's way ahead of its time. Recommended!
