Wildwood Flower: The Carter Family

May 3, 2009

One of my favorite songs, and this is a performance I had not heard. For you Carter family fans, this one is a must. Pay attention to the mercurial time between verses and lines. Beats are added and subtracted ad libitum.

Thank you for this Roger. I learned this song when I was 10 or 11 (but with different words–and only one verse). What a treat!
