More Mountain Melodies

We worked on Southern Mountain Melodies home page a bit more yesterday, and now there are four of the Traynhams songs available to generously sample. See the bottom of the sidebar for the links. And pardon our dust. For now, you can REFRESH the page by hitting F5 to make the player disappear when you’re through listening. We’ll fix this the next run through.

And for those few of you who might enjoy “Old Time, All the Time”, Mac told me about Sugar in the Gourd. Click on the LISTEN button up top on the program’s page, and well, listen. Discover some old favorites, and some NEW old favorites.
