Description

Rainbow Quest was a US TV Series at the height of the folk boom of the 1960s featuring authentic traditional music played in the atmosphere of an informal back porch picking party. Hosted by one of folk music's best known personalities, Pete Seeger, guests were drawn from across the spectrum of traditional music including bluegrass, country, folk, blues and gospel. THE STANLEY BROTHERS with COUSIN EMMY. Hailing from the mountains of Virginia, The Stanley Brothers and their group The Clinch Mountain Boys were one of the great bluegrass outfits of the 1940s and 1950s. Ralph Stanley is still performing as an elder statesman of the genre, whereas his brother died within a year of filming this programme. This is the only performance of The Stanley Brothers available on DVD. DOC WATSON is a fine guitar player and wonderful singer of traditional Southern US music. His brilliant instrumental technique and warm rich voice are showcased here with accompaniment by CLINT HOWARD (guitar) and FRED PRICE (fiddle).
