Biography

Many a clog dance has been performed to the music of Bascom Lamar Lunsford. Mostly recorded in the 1920s, his Appalachian folk songs often reveal dualities: they are both eerie and festive, lovelorn and romantic. His dexterous banjo picking combines with a crooning mountain voice that can make your hair stand on end. Lunsford was one of the first pastoral musicians to put stories of his life into his songs in a way that captivated listeners and earned him the title among many country and folk music enthusiasts as the king of folk music.
