The Appalachians

The Appalachian Trail: The Beaten Path

$150

COMBO 3:  3 DVD SET, CD & DVD, APPALACHIAN TRAIL

3 DVD SET - THE APPALACHIANS
The Appalachians tells the story of the people and the land of Appalachia. The film uses interviews with ordinary people, scholars, and musicians like Loretta Lynn, Marty Stuart, Rosanne Cash, Johnny Cash and others. This 3 disc DVD also contains excerpts from a never before seen interview with Johnny Cash (July 2003). The film's original soundtrack makes this truly special.

CD, THE APPALACHIANS
Stretching across the traditional North-South delineation of America's original colonial core, yet linking them as firmly as a spine, the Appalachian Mountains have had a central role in American industry, culture, and politics for centuries. While PBS's documentary series examines every facet of that history, this 22-track soundtrack companion focuses on the region's impossibly rich musical legacy. Along with jazz and the blues, the music of Appalachia remains one of America's most primal and consistently influential (as evidenced by the revivalist successes of Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? cultural treasures. The collection performs a tricky tightrope walk between tradition and its contemporary echoes, and artists from Jimmie Rodgers (the sublime "Waiting For a Train") and the Cash and Carter clans to contemporary stars like Rickie Skaggs and Jason Ringenberg, yet its most compelling moments seem rooted not in recording studios, but the region's rocky soil. The Alabama Sacred Harp Singing Convention's haunting, African-rooted harmonies on "Northfield" and eerie a cappella of Maggie Hammon's "When This World Comes to an End" stand in stark contrast to the disturbingly frank musings of the Blue Sky Boys' murderous "Down on the Banks of the Ohio." These are but three of the highlights on this evocative anthology. --Jerry McCulley

CD Track List

DVD, APPALACHIAN TRAIL: THE BEATEN PATH
Producer Morgan Hook examines the country's oldest hiking path, the men who created it, and those who walk it.

Hook also talks with Earl Shaffer, the first thru-hiker, shortly before Shaffer's death in April 2002. Running Time: 30 minutes
