Elizabeth 'Libba' Cotten "Shake Sugaree"


This isn't the first post on Elizabeth Cotten and it probably won't be the last but since I figured out the whole audio thing I thought, "hey why not?" Now you can hear Elizabeth Cotten's otherworldly guitar playing and hear her amazing granddaughter, Brenda Evans, sing vocals on the title track, Shake Sugaree that all of her grandchildren collectively wrote the lyrics to. I am also going to include the song "Ruben", don't be surprised if your hair stands up on end like a wild animal...her voice and guitar tread lightly in the heaviest way.

**If you want the vinyl lemme know**
