Without attempting to slight any other Appalachian or old-time artist, many critics have decided the solo recordings of Roscoe Holcomb produced in the '60s by John Cohen represent some kind of pinnacle for this genre. Every quality that is important in this music is represented here in the fullest dimension, by a man who sings like a philosopher while keeping a rhythm going on several stringed instruments that would make a metronome envious. And then there's his voice. Listen free to Roscoe Holcomb Close to Home Motherless Children, Mississippi Heavy Water Blues and more. 11 tracks 41:09. Close To Home. Released 1975.

Craven abandoned her music career in 2000, a mixture of writer's block and the need to take care of her three young daughters. In 2004 she made a slow comeback, doing a handful of live appearances, but was shortly after diagnosed with breast cancer. After receiving treatment and given the all-clear, Craven decided to resume her music career. Recorded in Holcomb's home in eastern Kentucky, this album portrays the music of a master musician whose identification with his songs is intense, innate, and above all, honest. It's not for nothing that John Cohen, the man who recorded Close to Home, coined the phrase the high lonesome sound to describe Holcomb's voice. Play jigsaw puzzles for free Home.
