In front of an age-old trailer, or under the porch of a broken-down home, sit two weather worn ladies. Guitar in hand, they sing their songs of wonder, distilling years of struggle into blissful and blithe melodies. And still their dry-but-mellow voices dance into the world... Precious Bryant (4 January 1942 - January 2013) and Algia Mae Hinton (29 August 1929) have wandered through the century, singing lullabies to their children and grandchildren. Real, timeless, their music has travelled across the Atlantic, meandered between the Piedmont and the Blue Ridge Mountains, and settled into a style of finger picking a little reminiscent of Mississippi John Hurt, Jimmy Rodgers, or their buddy Elisabeth Cotton of this particular sound that travelled all the way from Europe and collided with Africa. Deep in the rubble of a forgotten South West, far away from the Mississippi, both river and State, the two fine finger style guitarists play, evoking the tingle of rain on sheet metal. Gentle and unobtrusive, unaffected by a half century of changes, they have salvaged the precious and youthful feel of the timeless blues: an enthralling and beautiful sound, distinctly feminine, with major chords and melancholy textures.
