ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Prairie Acre is working to bring old-time music to a new generation. Every time they pick up their stringed instruments, kick off a song and start making their distinctively twangy sound, they’re doing their part to keep alive the pre-MP3, pre-CD, pre-LP era when the best way to enjoy good music was to play it with your friends and neighbors.
The Prairie Acre’s signature sound comes from the rambunctious fiddling of Tricia Spencer (fiddle, vocals), and from members Noah Musser, (banjo, vocals); Greg Yother (guitar, vocals) and Virginia Musser (bass, vocals). They got together in Lawrence, KS in 2002 and quickly built a loyal following among people throughout the Midwest and beyond who liked their family-friendly spirit, down-home flavor and instrumental talent.
The band's fourth CD, a 15-song romp through traditional and original numbers, continues the band’s efforts to explore, adapt and revive songs that are woven into America’s folk-music fabric.
"It is always wonderful to see up-and-coming young people get a true feel and design for the music. They can often give a glimpse into where we might be going next in old-time music. The Prairie Acre, a Lawrence, Kansas-based old-time group, is definitely on the right track. Not only are they following musical tradition, they are bringing the next generation along on their backs.
Renowned for their recent appearances at contests such as Mount Airy wearing their youngest members in baby snuggies on their backs, the Prairie Acre is all about carrying traditions.
I like the energy, enthusiasm, ability and vitality of these musicians. This CD gets played regularly in my mix and, in my opinion, owning it is not only an investment in great music, it's an investment in the future of old-time."
-- Malcolm Smith, "The Old-Time Herald"
