Our CD's:

Old-Time Appalachian Music is a collection of 14 traditional tunes commonly heard in the Old-Time Music world.  A sweet sounding CD, it will connect you with the Appalachian Mountains.  Liner notes and photos included.  Made from recycled materials.

Fried Okra offers 20 tunes ranging from a capella ballads to rousing dance tunes.  This CD features many area Old-Time musicians.  Ideas for the design of the CD came from friends and family; it's really unique.  Liner notes and photos included.  Made from recycled materials.

Step way back in time and listen to Ruth sing six a capella ballads hundreds of years old.  They are not all melancholy, some will have you laughing and toe-tapping.  A total of 15 tunes with liner notes and photos are included.  Made from recycled materials.

15 really old Christmas tunes and sleigh bells with over 30 different local musicians and singers. Hear Old Harp (shape note) singing, fiddle tunes, humorous ditties, a capella carols and spirituals, Appalachian Christmas ballads, Celtic holiday tunes, and more.

A rockin', soulful, comedic, tearful, foot shufflin', 20 collection of tunes that folks always wanted on a recording, and we finally did! So here they are on 21 different instruments  played by 7 outstanding musicians, in these Emerts Cove Sessions.
