I picked up a copy of the 2nd South Carolina String Band’s newest CD this past Sunday afternoon while in Gettysburg for a book signing. This is the group’s fourth CD and, frankly, it may be their best. Most of you are aware how much I enjoy this band, as it was one of my late father’s favorites. This latest effort is a well done mix of some well known tunes (My Old Kentucky Home, Listen to the Mockingbird, etc.), some lesser known songs that were popular in the 1860s, and some great parodies from the soldiers (Listen to the Parrott Shell, Southron’s Battle Cry of Freedom, and a southern version of Dixie). Some great stuff in this collection!
This is very good music to pop in to the CD player as you ride around the battlefield! It’s also good as background music when painting wargaming figures. Pick up a copy today!
