Jimmie Brown the Newsboy

Last week I mentioned our plan to make our music available for free. I haven’t made much progress on the new website yet, but I did get recordings of yesterday’s performance at the Kentucky Coffeetree Café (Walt always records), and they sound great. So I think the Coffeetree will be our “studio,” and I’ll take songs as we manage to record decent versions and post them to the site. But while the site continues not to exist, I’ll post them here.

Today’s song is “Jimmie Brown the Newsboy”, an old Carter Family song which Flatt & Scruggs made popular. This version is notable for two reasons: (1) Chris sings lead, part of our effort to turn over lead singing responsibilities to him; and (2) he is pretty pleased that he’s managed to recreate Earl Scruggs’s fine playing on the same song.
