From Wilkes County, North Carolina, the Elkville String Band plays genuine American rural music. They go back to a day when musicians didn't care whether what they were playing was called old-time, bluegrass, gospel, or country; it was just music. The members of the Elkville String Band powerfully convey the pure joy of playing music together.
Rooted and original, joyous, creative, and down to earth, the Elkville String Band's album is not just enjoyable and but quite important. They represent one of a very few living, authentic representatives of a significant slice of southern American musical heritage best known for Roy Acuff, Hall, and Snuffy Jenkins.
