This week we’ll be coming live from WDVX studios in Clinton, Tennessee to bring you selections from the Sharp family of Fentress County. Documentarian & photographer Rachel Boillot will join us to chat a bit about Evelene Sharp & we’ll play some of Evelene’s home recordings.
The Sharp family music traditions are the subject of a two-volume compilation released by Sandrock Recordings called Sharp’s Hornpipe. You can purchase both volumes on CDBaby.com:
Volume 1: The Fiddling John Sharp Recordings
Volume 2: The Sharp Family Recordings

Hi Friends! I’d like to take this chance to introduce myself. My name is Marcianne O’Day and I’m your weekly host for The Cumberland Trail radio show on WDVX throughout 2012.
