Norman Blake, Nancy Blake & Tut Taylor – Shacktown Road


 “A beautiful journey by a trio of masters …an array of musical stylings, all in the Americana vein. Blake’s vocals, guitar and mandolin, Nancy’s cello and, of course, Taylor’s flatpicking resonator guitar, combine to blaze a trail for yet another adventure for these musical pioneers” … Jerry Lankford, The Record, Wilkesboro, N.C.


Shacktown Road


Guitar Rag


The Old Dobro Man


 It’s been 35 years since Tut and Norman, along with Vassar Clements joined John Hartford on the legendary Warner Brothers recording, Aereo-Plain. This is the first recording for old friends Tut & Norman, who along with Nancy Blake preserve wonderful memories and long-held traditions on  SHACKTOWN  ROAD.

The eighteen selections of Old Timey Music are reminiscent of Moon Pies and Nehi soda; resophonic sounds, songs and stories from the South. They recorded in the small house of Jens & Uwe Kruger near Wilkesboro on Old Highway 60, just up the way from Shacktown Road.
