Old-Time Songs the Old-Time Way
The liner notes from her 2014 CD, Martha Burns: Old-Time Songs, say it best: "Martha Burns sings old-time American folk songs the old-time way. Heart songs, cowboy songs, tragic ballads and comic ditties--songs from the mountains and songs from the range. Songs from the earliest period of recorded country music and songs never sung in a studio. Her haunting voice is perfectly suited to her old-time repertoire. An accomplished guitarist, Martha's accompaniments bring out the pith in a song. She has been singing and playing American folk music since Hoover was in the White House--well, almost--and has performed throughout North America and abroad. ?
