Continuing with today’s video theme, here is a link to a Jimmy Martin interview available on YouTube. It is provided on the YouTube site of James Reams & The Barnstormers, who included the interview as a part of a DVD they released last year and distributed along with their Troubled Times CD.
The DVD contained a 20 minute preview of a documentary on the first generation of bluegrass artists, entitled Pioneers Of Bluegrass. It is still in production, with a release expected in 2007, and is directed by James Reams along with Joe Copp and David Fassno. The YouTube clip is taken from that preview.
Their YouTube page also features a number of studio performances of James Reams & The Barnstormers. They include Winsboro Cotton Mill, Coal Dust In My Soul and Black Mountain Blues.
