This is an amazing recording. The playing is magical - Lena Hughes communicates her love for this music. I wish the disk would go on and on - what a shame she did not record more. To learn about Lena Hughes and this recording, go to these web pages: [...] and [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pure guitar February 9, 2013
By David
Format:MP3 Music
It's a shame she never recorded anything else that we know about. I wish this one was longer than it is.

Lena Hughes should be well known in American music circles but she is not. This CD provides a glimpse of past greatness by a self taught musician on the frontier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Historic Significance March 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Very skilled guitar playing. Gave to a friend who is very into American folk/bluegrass and he loves it because he sees the progression from Lena's playing into other of his favorites. Great music to fall asleep on the airplane, also.

I'm afraid I expected more from Lena. I just couldn't get passed the caterwauling of her voice. I really wanted to love this, too.

I presume the content is all she recorded but if not I would have appreciated more tunes. Lena Hughes has a unique and engaging style

4.0 out of 5 stars My review if Lena Hughes
The music is beautiful. She had a unique talent, it just seemed short. I'd like a CD that is longer.
