Buell Kazee was born at the turn of the century and recorded for Brunswick Records in the late 1920s, but then spent 22 years as a pastor in Morehead, Kentucky. He didn’t experience a career comeback until the American folk music revival of the 1960s, when his traditional “thrashing” banjo style and high, “lonesome” singing earned him a reputation as one of the best folk singers in U.S. history. He went on to perform at the Newport Folk Festival with folk stars like Doc Watson, Dock Boggs and Clarence Ashley. With twenty tracks, Buell’s self-titled album includes classics like “Orphan Girl” and “Shady Grove.”
One of the very best folk singers in U.S. history.
