In the Pines
|New from||Used from|
Audio CD, February 28, 2011
In the Pines combines several strains of traditional music-country, blues, and Celtic. "Careless Love" and "In the Pines" are among the oldest songs in the American folk music tradition. This version of "Careless Love," derived from the playing and singing of Dock Boggs, depicts thwarted love from the man's perspective. "Charles Guiteau" is about the assassination of President James Garfield in 1881.
From the blues tradition come "Mississippi Bottom Blues" by the enigmatic Kid Bailey (1929) and "Flat Tire Blues" by Jack Jackson (also 1929). From the Celtic tradition come the instrumentals "Morgan Meaghan," by the blind harper Turlough O'Carolan; "The Mason's Apron;" and the lyrical ballad "Carrickfergus."
