Rural United States has always held within it a treasure trove of virtuoso musical performers. Beginning in the 1920s, commercial recording companies found that there was a market for many of these virtuosi (like the Kessinger Brothers). In ensuing decades, country music became a more standardized and commercialized entity, but rural performers continued to play their trade and pass down songs and tunes at parties, dances, and fiddle contests, though just underneath the radar of most popular culture.

Bee Balm Music is part of an effort to dig deep into this vital musical tradition and present some of the best of its artists. Performers here are both famous and obscure, but all are important representatives of a living, continuing, and sustaining musical culture.

Browse through some of these recordings and be prepared to be surprised at the energy and vitality of this important musical tradition.
