ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Cumberland Trio, consisting of Andy Garverick, Jerre Haskew, Tom Kilpatrick, along with bassist and comedian Jim Shuptine, was a prominent folk music group in the 1960s folk era who appeared on ABC-TV's Hootenanny prime time Saturday night show 3 times, won the National Collegiate Folk Festival, played the Grand Ole Opry and performed at numerous college & folk club concerts across the USA. The Trio broke up in late 1965 because of the British Invasion by the Beatles, Stones and other bands.

The origianl group reunited THIRTY-SEVEN years later in 2000 with the release of this original 1964 RCA album, brilliantly produced by the legendary Chet Atkins and remastered to CD by Steve Wallace of CWSMultiMedia.com, The Cumberland Trio has since recorded two live reunion concerts {2001 & 2004 both available right here on CDBaby on both DVD (2004) and 2 Disc CD (2001 & 2004)} and is performing concerts at great music halls & major multi-genre music festivals across the USA.

Their music is being played on major NPR/ Americana/ Bluegrass/ Folk music radio stations across the USA and in Europe. PBS broadcasted the Trio's 2004 reunion concert DVD within Tennessee in December of 2005, with plans to syndicate it to all other PBS affiliate stations throughout the USA in 2006-2007.

The Trio's recordings have received praise from such folk era icons as Bob Shane of The Kingston Trio, Mike Kirkland of The Brothers Four and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds. Shane is quoted as saying, "This is a MUST recording for any folk music fan, as these guys were/are as good as anybody in the business. Had in not been for the emergence of the Beatles in 1964, they would be folk legends."


The Cumberland Trio's sound is a combination of '60s commercial and tradtional acoustic folk music, much of it original, with a bluegrass, blues and gospel style, as well as exceptional and unique solo and harmony vocals and instrumental breaks on the 5 string banjo and lead acoustic guitar by Andy Garverick. This landmark folk recording was remastered to CD in 2000 and includes 14 songs cut live in studio in April, 1964 at RCA Nashville,TN and produced by the legendary Chet Atkins. There are an additional 9 songs recorded in December, 1963 live at The Pump Room in Knoxville,TN.

Cindy Hill/CD Reviews

Extraordinary recording, tight driving American folk at its populist roots
In the time of legends, Spring, 1963, four young fraternity brothers calling themselves the Cumberland Trio (math majors they ain't)brought down the house at a University of Tennessee campus band showcase with their tight-driving all American blend of bluegrass, gospel, and seeds-of-rock, and landed a contract with RCA, where their 1964 Nashville recordings were produced by the legendary Chet Atkins. The group has re-released this extraordinary original recordings together with several self-produced tracks from the same era.
Reflecting the times is a sense of political courage, and an unwavering presumption that music belongs to the people who work the fields, sail the ships, and dig the mines, transforming "Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya" into a universal plea for peace, and "John Henry" into a tribute to all men and woman who work by the sweat of their brow. The powerful sound The Cumberland Trio has not only survived the decades, but been reborn, emerging like a breath of fresh air into today’s folk-pop music scene that has drifted far from its populist roots.

Buy the disc for yourself, and one for your parents so they can remember, and one for your kids so they don't forget. Read my complete review at www.cdreviews.com

Dreaming of college folk
If you like the college folk of the sixties, this is a great album. Like the Brothers Four or Kingston Trio, but different. Nice balance between mellow and brightness. Relax and remember those lovely years at university.
