    Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
    Evergreens from the Old Cupboard
    (Slágry ze staré almary)
    Fourteen old-time country songs featuring Martin Zák & Vera Staiglová and the eminent Appalachian-style fiddler, Wayne Erbsen

    Grab Your Bones and Rattle Along with Martin Zak
    He lives high up in the mountains of the Czech Republic.

    Martin Zak is a phenomenal multi-instrumentalist and master of traditional percussion who clog dances, plays banjo, harmonica, jaw harp, mouthbow, spoons, bones, washboard and who knows what else. And if that is not enough for you, Martin's work is endorsed by old-time music luminaries such as David Holt and Mike Seeger. Even John Rice Irwin, founder and director of the Appalachian Museum in Tennessee says "Martin Zak plays old-time Southern Appalachian music more authentically than anyone in our area."

    So order a cd or two and rattle along to these favorite old-time traditional tunes played like you've never heard them before.

    Old-Time Music You Really Need to Czech Out

    Martin Zak The songs in this album used to be a common part of the everyday life of settlers looking for a new home on American mainland.

    Martin's stylish playing is crowned by the inimitable voice of songstress Vera Staiglová, so you can enjoy the more subtle side of good old country music too. You will also hear authentic Appalachian mountain fiddling by Wayne Erbsen, one of the most prominent interpreters of the pure old-time style.

    Includes 33-page CD Booklet and Wall Poster
    This recording is accompanied with a fully illustrated booklet with lyrics, historical information about the songs (in Czech) and photos. You even get a full-color wall poster.

    Rattlin' along to these traditional old-time tunes in Czech is a real hoot. And like just about all the cottage industry products in my little online bones store, you won't see this hard-to-find CD at the local music shop. So order a copy now while you can.
