Bill Clifton - Around the World to Poor Valley album download

As a wealthy northerner, Bill Clifton 's career in bluegrass and old-timey music not only demonstrated the universal appeal of musical forms previously associated with the poor, rural South, but paved the way for the broad success of the bluegrass revival in the '60s and '70s among artists and audiences from diverse backgrounds. Ironically, Clifton adhered more strictly to the traditions of old-timey and bluegrass music than many of the vaunted bluegrass artists with more "authentic" upbringings

Bill Clifton was born William Marburg on April 5, 1931 in Maryland, USA. His family owned an estate which employed tenant farmers. It was from some of these the farmers, and the radio, that Bill first heard old-time/country music. He learned to play piano, guitar, fiddle and autoharp. Because Bill's family was very much against his musical endeavors, he used the stage name "Bill Clifton". He formed the original Dixie Mountain Boys band while in college. In 2001, Bear Family Records ín Germany released the definitive collection of Bill Clifton recordings in a 8-CD box set called Around The World To Poor Valley (BCD-16425-CD). Bill Clifton was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music's "Hall Of Fame" in 2008. Rienk Janssen and Bill Clifton Netherlands - April 3, 2016.
