Rambling with Charlie
August 22, 2009 - Bill Ackerbauer
In the past couple of years, one of the old-time musicians I've been listening to quite a bit is Charlie Poole (1892-1931), a banjo-playing songster who made several records in the late 1920s with his band, the North Carolina Ramblers. You can imagine my excitement when I found out, just a few days ago, that one of my favorite present-day (i.e., not dead yet) singer/songwriters, Loudon Wainwright III, has released a two-disc album of new material inspired by the life and work of Charlie Poole.
Terry Gross, host of NPR's "Fresh Air," recently did an interview with Wainwright about his Charlie Poole project. You can listen to it here: FRESH AIR
