- Hello, folks!

And thanks for tuning in to Song Of The Mountains.

I'm your host, Tim White, glad to be here.

We have a talented lineup for you tonight,

so let's get it started.

We begin with the ETSU Old Time Ramblers,

led by Roy Andrade, they're an old-time string band

from the Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music Program

at East Tennessee State University

in Johnson City, Tennessee.

ETSU is one of the few universities in the country

that offers a bachelors degree in traditional music

and they're a bunch of talented pickers

and we're pleased to have them on the show for you tonight.

Here's the ETSU Old Time Ramblers.

[lively bluegrass music]

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

- Thanks so much folks, that's Sally Ann.

You know, this band focuses on the music

that came before bluegrass.

We like to listen to the old recordings

from the '20s and the '30s

and the '40s and '50s.

We really like to focus on the early stuff

and you know, I wanna say thank you to Tim,

just for doing this, first of all,

but also, yesterday we had an announcement

at the university.

Tim's organization the ACMA, the Mountain Music Museum,

donated about 5,000 records to our program, about 3500 Lps,

and for us in old-time music, the really exciting thing was

about 1200 78 RPM recordings.

That's the old thick ones, you know,

that have one song per side.

For us that study old-time music, that's like gold for us,

so we're super grateful.

This is just hot off the press, just happened yesterday,

and I just wanna say, if any of you folks have boxes

of old records that you're wondering what to do with

and want somebody to kinda caretake 'em

and use them in our teaching, we would love to do that.

So, think of us before you think of Goodwill.

[audience laughing]

All right, well we're gonna keep the music rolling here.

I want to introduce one of the sisters up here.

These gals have been in our program for a year now

and they come to us from Boone, North Carolina.

They already play professionally in a band

called Strictly Strings.

Anybody know about Strictly Strings?

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

Yes, Strictly Strings.

And we couldn't be happier to have them,

they're playing bluegrass music, Celtic music,

and old-time music in our program

and to sing this next song,

please make welcome Kathleen Burnett.

Yes.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

- Thank you.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

- [Kathleen] Yes, thank you.

- How's it going folks?

Am I loud enough, can you hear me?

Am I uncomfortably close?

[audience laughing]

All right, I'll take that as a no, silence is a no.

Okay, so glad you guys all made it here tonight,

that's like 10% of it, sitting here is about like 20% of it,

sitting through the whole thing that's about,

like the rest of it, so.

[audience laughing]

I went to school for bluegrass, old-time, and country music,

math was not my major or my minor,

but so I guess I'll introduce one more person.

There's a lot of redundancy in this band,

not a band thing, not a band thing.

Lot of redundancy though, in terms of place names,

so you'll hear names like, Boone and Clyde, a lot.

And also you'll hear a lot of, like, last names repeated.

So let's do not a repeat of a last name,

we'll do a repeat of a different place

but it'll get repeated later, so it'll all make sense then.

Okay so, from Clyde, one of the places to be repeated,

28721, that's the zip code,

her name is Helena Hunt on banjo

and that was an awful introduction.

[audience laughing] [audience applauding]

- Keegan is actually my neighbor

in Crabtree, North Carolina, so. [laughs]

This next song is called Pretty Bird.

It's by a woman by the name of Hazel Dickens,

which was one of the first ladies

to go from old-time to bluegrass music,

and she wrote this song, it's actually an acapella song,

but we've turned it into a string band song, so,

I'm gonna play it now.

[gentle bluegrass music]

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Fly Fly away

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ And pretty you'll always stay ♪

♪ I see in your eyes a promise

♪ Your own tender love you'll bring ♪

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Cold run in the spring

[gentle bluegrass music]

♪ Love's tender flame warms this meeting ♪

♪ And love's tender song you'll sing ♪

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Pretty you'll always sing

♪ I cannot make you no promise

♪ Love's such a daily good thing ♪

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Pretty you'll always sing

[gentle bluegrass music]

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Fly, fly away

♪ Fly little pretty bird

♪ Pretty you'll always stay

♪ Fly far beyond the dark mountains ♪

♪ To where you'll be free ever more ♪

♪ Fly away little pretty bird

♪ Where the cold winds don't blow ♪

[gentle bluegrass music]

[audience applauding] [audience members cheering]

- Yes. - Thank you.

[audience applauding]

- So I was gonna intro another person,

but we're gonna not show all of our cards immediately.

I gotta keep some mystery.

Yeah, it's always nice not to know

everyone that's up on stage.

Sometimes you just never know.

But so, I'm gonna introduce the next song.

So this song is by Fiddlin' Cowan Powers and his family,

pretty self-explanatory.

Tim and his family, a family band,

so Fiddlin' Cowan Powers, he actually died onstage,

well he didn't actually finish the process onstage,

he started the process of dying onstage, died in a car

or something.

So, he wasn't playing this song tho,

he was playing, like, Cluck Old Hen,

which is not the song I want to die to.

Good song, good song,

but it's not a dying song,

or it's not like a to die for song.

This one's probably not either.

[clears throat]

So we're gonna, [audience laughing]

[clears throat]

sorry I'm on the tail-end

of something here, it's set up in my lungs,

so I have the lunch capacity of a teacup chihuahua,

which works all right for a teacup chihuahua

but I am slightly bigger than a teacup chihuahua.

Not as big, not as big as I used to be,

that's a different story.

But, sorry I've lost you completely.

[audience laughing]

So, to get back to my original point,

were gonna try not to die during the course of this song,

but it's like three minutes, so anything could happen.

[audience laughing]

It's called Rocky Road to Dinah's House.

[clears throat] [string instruments twanging]

I'm getting some lung space there.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

Almost died on that one, but we made it through.

- All right, we wanna keep the talking a little,

I won't talk as long,

but I wanna introduce the guy you've been hearing talk.

Now my favorite thing about Keegan on the mic is

none of this is planned, maybe you've been able to tell.

[audience laughing]

- You bet they can tell.

- When he's the funniest is when talks himself into a corner

and he's just kinda, [laughs]

and then to listen to him kinda wind his way back out,

that's when it's just priceless.

So he's also from Clyde, North Carolina.

That's at the foot of or kinda close to Cold Mountian,

down there nears Waynesville.

Mr. Keegan Luckey-Smith.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

- Thanks.

Problem is I work myself into a corner a lot.

[string instruments twanging]

[Kathleen laughs]

- [Kathleen] What can you say about him really?

- [Roy] I know.

- This next song is one that one of my favorite singers

wrote long time ago, her name was Ola Belle Reed,

so maybe some of y'all are familiar with her.

She was born in Ash County, near Lansing, North Carolina,

ended up moving up to Maryland in her teens, I guess it was

and I should know a lot more and remember a lot more,

because I did a presentation on this

on Wednesday in his class,

but my memory.

But this is a fun one.

Many people have done it, it's called I've Endured.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

Thank you.

[musicians chattering]

- All right folks, we have one more,

one more song for ya and one last gal to introduce,

the sister of Kathleen, who just sang that,

the other half of the dynamic Burnett duo,

Miss Anissa Burnett on fiddle.

[audience members cheering] [audience applauding]

Yes.

And thanks again Tim for having us, what a lovely place.

I mean, it looks like it coulda been built last year,

what a beautiful room.

If you ever get a chance to walk through the halls

and kind of, the dark chasms of this building,

it's a wonderland.

So thanks very much.

You wanna tell them about this song?

- Yes.

All right, this land one is called Banjo Pickin' Girl.

It's by the Coon Creek Girls.

They were the first all girl string band from the 1940s

and I was researching their music.

This was actually the first song I heard by them

because when I was researching their music

the name stood up for obvious reasons,

so I decided to play this one or learn it.

So this is gonna be our last song.

- The ETSU Old Time Ramblers here on Song Of The Mountains.

Now next up on the program we have the Amanda Cook Band.

They're a bluegrass band

based out of the great state of Florida

and Amanda formed the band in late 2013

after many years of playing in a band with her father.

She was determined to create her own sound

so she stepped out on her own

and released her first solo album, One Stop Along The Road,

and the project made it to the top 150 Roots Music

Bluegrass Album Chart for 2014 and 2015.

The self released album also brought Amanda

significant regional attention

and furthered the desire to grow her brand,

resulting in the addition of a full touring band.

We're pleased to have her on the stage tonight.

Here's the Amanda Cook Band.
