Etta Baker & Cora Phillips: Carolina Breakdown $12.00

"This recording helps us glimpse the complex origins and development of both Appalachian string band and Piedmont blues music. Perhaps more important, it conveys how powerful these traditions are when carried on by master artists who are part of a deep family legacy of music making." -Wayne Martin, Executive Director, NC Arts Council
