HOME AT LAST

"It is always a pleasure to have young talent among us, and a double pleasure when the young turn to the old ways. That closes the circle and validates our heritage. Thankfully, the best of our established musicians take a generous interest in the talented young, as Danny Arthur and John Blisard do in accompanying Jake on this recording. Together they make some fine mountain music."
 
 - Ken Sullivan, West Virginia Humanities Council
