Friday, July 12, 2019, 6-8 p.m., at Lloyd House features Martha Burns singing old-time American folk songs the old-time way. Heart songs, cowboy songs, tragic ballads, and comic ditties – songs from the mountains and songs from the range. Songs from the earliest period of recorded country music and songs never sung in a studio. Her haunting voice is perfectly suited to her old-time repertoire. An accomplished guitarist, Martha’s accompaniments bring out the pith in a song.
