CALLAHAN BROTHERS Take The News To Mother BACM CD 578


BACM’s first Callahan Brothers collection focuses mainly on their 1930s recordings, featuring their close harmony ‘White country yodelling-blues’ style. Songs a mix of old time country and Jimmie Rodgers numbers (several of the latter are adapted and retitled, for example Rodgers’ Mississippi Moon becomes North Carolina Moon and Blue Yodel No. 7 becomes I’ve Rode The Southern & The L&N ). Both brothers were accomplished musicians, Walter playing guitar and Homer variously guitar, fiddle and mandolin and on several tracks they are joined by the great Kentucky mandolinist Roy “Shorty” Hobbs.
