NMAS 006: The Fries Session
Eddie Bond • Karen Carr • Donald Hill • Peco Watson
Recorded May 18th, 2016 at the Fries Community Center in Fries, VA. Eddie Bond, Karen Carr, Donald Hill, and Peco Watson rip through twelve tracks of great old-time classics. An excellent document of a truly remarkable performance.
On the afternoon of May 18th, 2016, we found ourselves hanging out at Barr’s Fiddle Shop in Galax, VA. Stevie Barr made a quick phone call to Eddie Bond who happened to be cutting dance boards at the Fries Community Center in preparation for the annual Henry Whitter Festival. We walked into the community center a couple hours later and met Eddie and the musicians he had quickly assembled; namely Karen Carr, Donald Hill, and Peco Watson. What ensued was one of the most intense performances of old-time music we have ever experienced and we could not be happier to announce this recording is now available on CD or digital download for others to hear… https://www.nevermetastranger.org/catalog.html
