Notes

Ultra-rare and unique solo guitar album recorded in the early 1960s. It is a legendary recording among solo guitar aficionados, which rarely comes up for sale. Hughes, who died in 1998 at the age of 94, spent most of her life in Ludlow, Missouri, and according to the liner notes of the reissue she performed regularly at folk conventions and festivals; she also was a strong fiddler and banjo player. She was usually accompanied by her guitar-playing husband Jake when she performed at such festivals, performing a repertoire often dubbed parlor music—the popular music of the 19th century, when normal folks entertained themselves performing tunes from sheet music in their parlor. Album was reissued in 2013. Additional information here: http://www.npr.org/2013/02/06/171294400/the-ancient-vibration-of-parlor-music-revived-by-two-generations
