Rounder Records has done a remarkable job investigating and recording these old songs, mostly from the Kentucky area where they abounded so tremendously.  It's a great deal of drop-thumb banjo, but as one listens, the five-string style of Earl Scruggs begins to appear.   These two styles are incredible different, but both are very entertaining.  Mark Wilson and John Harrod are mostly responsible for this massive work of old-style banjo playing. Sometimes referred to as the 'clawhammer' style, many of the banjoists appearing on this CD very distinctly have their own style of playing.  It should also be noted this CD is basically an 'instrumental' project, keeping the banjo as the obvious attention getter.  We do hear an occasional vocal, 'John Hardy' being the first one. 'Stackolee" is another great vocal number, performed by Bert Garvin.  Blanche Coldiron does a very nice job on "Lonesome Road Blues," very old-timey and just as it once was sung.  "Home Sweet Home" is done by Omar Hook, a genuine song-catcher.  He had very strong feelings about the music he played and how he played it.  He was often upset with bluegrass players who he felt improperly acted as if they had invented the three-finger picking style. Omar was a rugged individualist, devising his own style of playing, including the use of steel strings instead of gut, and refusing to use picks or capos to play his music.  A frontiersman of early mountain music to say the least. The closing song "The Fun's All Over" is efficiently done by Bert Garvin with J P Fraley on fiddle and Danielle Fraley on guitar.  It's a perfect representation of how the music was done and and obviously over with.  There is a small notice on the inside of the CD insert from the North American Traditions Series..."The rural communities of the United States and Canada possess a rich and varied heritage of spirited forms of social music including square dance fiddling, old songs and banjo tunes.  Under the general editor-ship of Mark Wilson of the University of Pittsburgh and drawing upon recordings made over the past thirty years this series seeks to introduce this music and its performers to a wider public."  Pretty much the same desire of the National Traditional Country Music Association and my own volunteer as president for the past 41 years.  Real country music, real rural music, of America is rapidly descending into the historical past, even though rural America doesn't listen to today's modern rock & roll and noise called 'country', as a music emanating from rural America.  Well it doesn't, does it?

CD: YELLOW BELLIED SAPSUCKERS - Ocooch Mountain Home

YELLOW BELLIED SAPSUCKERS
Ocooch Mountain Home
Get A Good Grip On My Heart - The Broke (Ass) Waltz - Ghost Of The St. Louis Blues - Toothbrush Ho-Down - Medalla De Dios - Ballad Of Will Wing - The Crazy Rag - Kiss Away - Beneath A Neon Star In A Honky-Tonk - Patt And Otto's Waltz - Ocooch Mountain Home - The Goodbye Polka
 
I was absolutely amazed when I first heard this duet performing their original songs on this, the Ocooch Mountain Home CD.  This is definitely a step back in time.  It's very hard to describe what this lovely couple do with music. It definitely has some western-jazz swing music BUT it also is very definitely some roaring-twenty's music.  "Ghost Of The St. Louis Blues" is a harken back to 'Frankie & Johnnie."  Absolutely delightful. And just when you are set to hear some more of the same, Nikki Grossman turns her Scandinavian fiddle into a very old-timey hoe-down song that even changes tempo to get you up dancing.  How neat is that?  Patrick Harrison joins them, in the just-right places, for some accordion and lap steel.  His Mexican accordion on "Medalla De Dios" is just right, and very authentic.  They are singing of God and it's all in Spanish, very well done, on one of the rare songs they did not write themselves. Making their home in Wisconsin, this very gifted and talented duo promise to be at the LeMars Festival, and we are working hard to find a way to present them at the Oak Tree in Anita, Iowa.  We even hear a little 'scat' on "The Crazy Rag."  The old-time fiddle wends its way throughout this project, and it sounds just right to me.  The guitar backing is that 20's style of strum and very interesting beat-keeping style.  Even the waltz "Patt And Otto's Waltz" sounds just right for a slow dance, and I'm sure that is exactly what it does.  The actual name of the CD "Ocooch Mountain Home" is very mountain style, sounding like it just came out of Appalachia, maybe 50 years ago.  How terrific is that, because it's one of their originals. They close this very pleasant listening experience with another of their own, "The Goodbye Polka."  This CD is going to get heard by the Rural Roots Music Commission, and I can already hear the ooohs and aaahs as they describe the style and method of 'creating' music from the past.  This hillbilly-vaudeville style of music is far to delicious to pass up.

JAMALA aus der Ukraine gewinnt mit "1944" den Eurovision Song Contest 2016


Jamala, JAMALA aus der Ukraine gewinnt mit 1944 den Eurovision Song Contest 2016

JAMALA aus der Ukraine gewinnt mit "1944" den Eurovision Song Contest 2016
Es war ein spannendes Finale bis zur letzten Minute! Die Gewinnerin des Abends ist JAMALA aus der Ukraine, die mit dem dramatischsten Titel des Abends antrat! Mit ihrem Song "1944" begeisterte sie beim Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm das Publikum und die Jury und holte mit 534 Punkten den Sieg! Die Single "1944" ist bereits erhältlich.

Beim 61. Song Contest 2016, der in diesem Jahr in Stockholm, Schweden, stattfand und weltweit u.a. auch in den USA und Australien live übertragen wurde, schaffte Jamala in einem Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen die Sensation und holte den Sieg! Ihr Song "1944" erhielt von den Zuschauern und den Fachjurys insgesamt 534 Punkte und erreichte damit Platz 1 vor der Sängerin Dami Im aus Australien. "Down Under" war diesem Jahr zum zweiten Mal im Wettbewerb dabei. Platz 3 holte Sergey Lazarev für Russland. Der Eurovision Song Contest wird weltweit von über 200 Millionen Zuschauern gesehen.

Jamalas Song "1944" hat eine sehr persönliche Bedeutung für die Sängerin: Obwohl Jamala den Song erst letztes Jahr geschrieben hat, stammt die Geschichte dahinter aus ihrer Kindheit. Ihre Großmutter erzählte ihr von der Deportation der Krimtataren 1944 durch die Sowjetunion. “1944“ wurde für all die Menschen geschrieben, die eine schreckliche Tragödie erlebt haben. Solche Tragödien sollten niemals in Vergessenheit geraten damit man sie in Zukunft vermeiden kann. Genau diese Botschaft möchte Jamala mit ihrem Song mit so vielen Menschen wie möglich teilen.

Jamala gehört in ihren Heimat zu den größten Stars. Sie hat bereits vier Studioalben und 12 Musikvideos veröffentlicht. 2016 gewann sie in vier Kategorien des National Music Awards YUNA, unter anderem in den Kategorien „Best Solo Artist“ und „Best Song“, und war für den MTV Europe Music Award nominiert.
