This time it’s Ramblin’ Blues, captured in a decidedly retro vintage style.
Poole’s music is having something of a resurgence these days, with a festival in North Carolina dedicated to his memory, and a fine biography by Kinney Rorrer, Rambling Blues, back in print. He was always something of a rogue and a rambler during his brief life, dying from his alcohol excesses in 1931.
But he left behind a legacy of both songs and recorded output, and a unique banjo playing style only rarely copied in this day and age.
And now Davis and his loyal crew have created a full album of Charlie’ songs for the bluegrass audience to enjoy. Find out more online.
