I'm Going Down To North Carolina: The Complete Recordings of The Red Fox Chasers (1928-31)
Released: Aug 2009
Label: Tompkins Square
Popular in the late 1920s and early '30s, the Red Fox Chasers embodied a style of string band that emerged from northwestern North Carolina, a fertile region for Appalachian folk and old time music. Boasting incredible sound, I'm Going Down to North Carolina showcases the quartet's mix of fiddle tunes, mountain balladry and Tin Pan Alley favorites. Much like the iconic Charlie Poole, the Chasers' ensemble interplay contains a genuine crispness, as well as a surprising sense of precision.
