Oustanding - can't stop listening!!
This is a wonderful collection of great old time music. I've been playing it non-stop since it arrived. I play several of the songs (clawhammer and gourd)and it is great to hear Mary's versions. Highly recommended to anyone who loves the old time style!!!

Fred Coon

One of the Best Old Timey Sounds Around Today - Clean, Crisp - Together!
I have played banjo for nearly 50 years. I learned from the best old timers in the mountains growing up. Their songs were wonderful and their styles were what they were. Mary, on the other hand, has a smooth, clear, crisp style that makes you smile and want to get up and do the "Willard Watson" flatfoot.

It is so nice to hear the clean sound and the wonderful heart she puts into each arrangement.

Dawn Koster

This cd has so many good things about it I can't even begin. Walkin' That Banjo Home is for anyone who loves old time music and even anyone who has yet to fall in love with it! Mary Z. Cox is a fabulous musician and I'll stop talkin' and you should just buy this!

Larry Orlick

Even my wife likes this CD!
After getting Marys other CD "Vintage Banjo" and loving it, I had to get this one too to see if she could keep up her tradition of making great old time banjo music. She did in spades! What I like about it is they are all traditional tunes, but played with some fresh energy and style that is not so "squeaky and squaky" like some real old timers perform them. Even my wife, who is only tolerant of my passion for the banjo appreciates Mary's music. This CD stands way out in my banjo CD collection.

Walkin' that Banjo Home
I could not believe how fast it arrived after I ordered it, and the cd is great, but of course just about anything Mary Z does is great.

Bruce Evans

Great traditional clawhammer banjo
This album is all great american traditional tunes in a true clawhammer style. Pure clawhammer style is a bit limited in the number of notes that can be squeezed into a measure because the strings are only downpicked, so the artist must adapt some melodies to be able to play them. Mary does an outstanding job of this in Blackberry Blossom. While the tunes that are played on the fretless gourd banjo are closer to amusing than entertaining, the CD is a winner for the traditional music afficianado.
