Gordons, The

Style: old-timey folk country

 

 

Gary and Roberta Gordon have been playing old time country and bluegrass music for over twenty five years. Making their home in Illinois, Gary and Roberta are playing their music mainly in

community centers, clubs, and on festivals throughout the northeast of USA as a duo, as well as with a band. Gary plays very tasteful lead guitar and dobro, and Roberta plays rhythm autoharp. Their vocal blend gives them a warm distinctive sound, well-suited to their repertoire, which varies from originals to older Doc Watson and Norman Blake songs and traditional music from the Appalachian mountains.

Their success during the first European World of Bluegrass convention in 1998 resulted in contacts with Strictly Country Records. Their live performance of Norman Blake’s song “Ginseng Sullivan” was selected for the European World Of Bluegrass 1998 CD. The new “Live in Holland” CD was recorded during this 1998 convention as well as a second tour of Holland in the spring of 1999.

This record contains some of the Gordons finest duo material and their best recordings ever.
