Flowers In The Wildwood - Women In Early Country Music 1923-1939
Formats and Pricing

Item currently unavailable.



Description The songs on this CD date from the period before World War 2, when women in the American South started to claim country music for themselves. On these rare recordings you hear the female pioneers of the genre, who were establishing themselves in a man's world.

They were "flowers in the wildwood." These are womens voices, full of the sweetness of love itself and also the twang and cackle of dust storms, thunder and lightning, the burning sun. These are sisters, daughters, mothers, wicked witches, innocent maids, Jezebels. They sing of hope and fear, of lovers adored and hated, of happiness lost and found. These songs make your heart swell and crack and with each crack you rise just a little closer to heaven.

I knew four of these women who made these songs. I'll just make you guess which four women! Two were sisters from North Carolina. I'll just tell you this ... a lot of the stuff that women had to go through back then would be considered a crime today! How we survived it, well, some of us didn't. The rest of us made our own way. And I love this album. And I loved these women. I don't want to receive any credit. I was just proud to have known these women, to have sang and played with them, and I'm proud that they have some acknowledgement now! They deserve it! These girls deserve to be recognized!
