state of North Carolina is known particularly for its tradition of old-time music, and many recordings were made in the early 20th century by folk song collector Bascom Lamar Lunsford. Most influentially, North Carolina country musicians like the North Carolina Ramblers and Al Hopkins helped solidify the sound of country music in the late 1920s, while influential bluegrass musicians such as Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson and Del McCoury came from North Carolina.

In the early days of the recording industry, North Carolina was a hotbed of string bands playing traditional Appalachian folk-rooted music. This compilation collects 24 such recordings from the era immediately preceding and following the onset of the Depression, many of them quite obscure. Listeners with a general knowledge and appreciation of early American folk recordings might have heard of the Dixon Brothers and Mainer's Mountaineers, but for the most part, these performers will probably be unfamiliar to everybody except scholars and aficionados in the field.

String bands such as Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers, a group formed by a partnership between Poole, a banjoist and textile worker from the Carolina Piedmont, and West Virginia fiddler and coal miner Posey Rorer, merged traditional sounds with pop flavors. Simultaneous to Poole’s mixing of pop and string band sounds, West Virginia opera houses were hosting the violin talents of Joseph Szigeti and Fritz Kreisler. One hub of Appalachia’s Western Swing heyday was Roanoke, Virginia. With a population of nearly 70,000 by 1940, Roanoke was the seat of power for the Norfolk and Western Railway and had developed a number of industries which drew in laborers from the surrounding rural counties.

The Corn Potato String Band has achieved high praise in traditional American music, keeping old time fiddle and banjo music from a one-way trip to the dustbins of history. Theirs is a story of struggle, hard knocks and triumph. Essentially unable to cope with modern life, the members of this band are outcasts of society who survive by playing the lost music of the flatlands where they were raised.
