Ancient Hymns Sung By Appalachian Tradition Bearer and NEA Heritage Fellow Frank Newsome, Coming June 29

We can't wait for you to hear the new release from master hymn singer Frank Newsome. On Gone Away with a Friend (out June 29), Newsome sings in the arresting lined-out tradition of the Old Regular Baptists, a direct sonic ancestor to old-time, bluegrass, and gospel. The legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley grew up hearing this once-common style and attended Newsome's church later in his life where they spent time singing together. PRE-ORDER HERE.
