The diverse talents of both Art and Margo Rosenbaum have allowed them to document music traditions in a way few others could have done. Art is a painter, muralist, and illustrator, as well as a collector and performer of traditional American folk music. Margo is also an artist and photographer who has captured many of Art’s field recording encounters. With this CD, Dust-to-Digital proudly presents a sampling of music from both Art of Field Recording box sets, Volumes I and II.
Blues Rag: “…as Art of Field Recording shows, his onsite recording sweeps have yielded an absolute bounty of American traditional music in the raw. So much so that the 24 one-of-a-kind moments here represent only the very tip of the iceberg, a tasty sampler of the complete mother lode due later this year.”
Time Out New York: “Rosenbaum isn’t primarily an archivist; his work as a painter, art professor and folk musician seems to have informed his searching more than mere academic drive to trace musical history as far back as possible. Thus nearly all of the 24 pieces here — from stately yet raw blues to fiery fiddling stompers — are stirring affairs, and you won’t need a Ph.D. in country-R&B to get it.”
