49 winchester - "It's a shame" radio Bristol Session
"The Wind" out now!
"Triggered by Gibson’s oft-introspective lyrics, 49 Winchester could stand firm as a thinking man’s band. Appalachian wisdom spun in a web of youth and vigor, wonders and questions propel their latest album, “The Wind.” Nationwide, expanses of music fans know Appalachia for its bluegrass and country music. Gospel, too. As testified by 49 Winchester, that’s not all that surfaces from the region. They’re not Ralph Stanley. Don’t want to be, either."

1927 JUBILEE: THE NEW BRISTOL SESSIONS
The Bristol Sessions are considered the “Big Bang” of modern country music. They were held in 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee by Victor Talking Machine Company company producer Ralph Peer. During the sessions from July 25th to August 5th 1927, 76 songs were recorded by 19 performers or groups. The sessions introduced America to the music of southern Appalachia and launched the careers of The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers.
During the 90th anniversary of the sessions Stephen Schoencker recorded new sessions in Bristol Tennessee/Virginia featuring new songs by artists including Dolly Parton, 49 Winchester, Virginia Ground and more.
