Between the Blue Ridge & Chesapeake Bay
Page Wilson is a local folk icon. From his "Home in the Chickahominy Swamp" Page Wilson hosts the 'Out O' the Blue Radio Revue' on 88.9FM WCVE, where he spins what he calls "Purebred American Mongrel" music, an eclectic blend of blues, folk, bluegrass, cajun, country and whatever else "feels good". Virginia was Page Wilson's submittal when the Commonwealth was thinking of changing the official state song. These days it is the theme song that welcomes listeners to his radio program every Saturday night. I think it would have made a fitting state song. Special thanks to Lucy for giving me this CD several years ago. Get your own copy here.
Jim & Jesse McReynolds have been staples of the bluegrass world since 1947. In 2000 they recorded a collection of 4/4 shuffle country standards from the 1950's with The Opry Stage Band. Available from Pinecastle Records
