Blue Highway:
Old-Time Songs & Longbow Fiddle

In the early 1990s, singer/guitarist John Lilly and legendary Tennessee fiddler Ralph Blizard crisscrossed the country, playing their own brand of old-time music. Traditional, yet inventive. Original, but deeply rooted. From Alaska to Florida, they thrilled audiences with soaring fiddle, timeless singing, and an engaging stage presence.

Last Chance To Dance

"Somewhere in my wildest dreams lives a world where the past and the future dance cheek-to-cheek. To embrace either one of these partners, you suddenly find yourself dancing with the other.

This recording is my second humble effort to bring this whirling vision to reality, at least for a few moments.

Let the dance begin!"

- John Lilly

Mountains of Music:
West Virginia Traditional Music from
Goldenseal

Edited by John Lilly, Goldenseal, the magazine of West Virginia traditional life.

Paper
978-0-252-06815-7
Pub Date: 1999
Pages: 248 pages
Dimensions: 8.5 x 11 in.
Illustrations: 150 photographs

From fiddle tunes to folk ballads, from banjos to blues, traditional music thrives in the remote mountains and hollers of West Virginia. For a quarter century, Goldenseal magazine has given its readers intimate access to the lives and music of folk artists from across this pivotal state. Now the best of Goldenseal is gathered for the first time in this richly illustrated volume. Some of the country's finest folklorists take us through the backwoods and into the homes of such artists as fiddlers Clark Kessinger and U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, recording stars Lynn Davis and Molly O'Day, dulcimer master Russell Fluharty, National Heritage Fellowship recipient Melvin Wine, bluesman Nat Reese, and banjoist Sylvia O'Brien. The most complete survey to date of the vibrant strands of this music and its colorful practitioners, Mountains of Music delineates a unique culture where music and music making are part of an ancient and treasured heritage. The sly humor, strong faith, clear regional identity, and musical convictions of these performers draw the reader into families and communities bound by music from one generation to another. For devotees as well as newcomers to this infectiously joyous and heartfelt music, Mountains of Music captures the strength of tradition and the spontaneous power of living artistry.
