It has been a long time since I've been here. Probably some are asking "Who's this guy?" Well, nevermind. Here's the question.
At my banjo student's lesson last evening, we were going over "Penny's Farm." I told him how I had learned it off of an old Rounder recording "Hard Times in the Country" by the Traum brothers, Happy & Artie. I began to wonder if Rounder keeps old recordings in print. After all, that album is thirty years old. I searched the Rounder website, and couldn't come up with anything, leading me to suspect that the LP has not been reissued on CD. Too bad. Happy Traum turned in some nice frailing on "Penny's Farm" and I wanted my student to hear it.
