Almeda Riddle sings in old-timey, mountain style. She learned music from her father, and many of her songs go back to the Middle Ages. She has kept the musical tradition of ballad singing alive, and has kept the original versions of many songs from years past. There is a reason that this cd, "Songcather II - The Tradition That Inspired The Movie" was named as it is.
Mrs. Riddle was born in 1898 and was singing ballads before she could read. This album, "Songcatcher II - The Tradition That Inspired The Movie" has music for those who want authentic, mountain music. There are many artists on this album. This is Almeda Riddle singing her version of "Black Jack Davey". Enjoy!
