The Shortest Day

Kenny Jackson

The Shortest Day is the long-awaited sequel to Kenny’s 2004 solo album Over the Mountain, and it builds on that record’s vision of what old-time music might be. Fifteen tracks, among them nine original pieces (including the title track), with accompaniment on many of the tunes by some of the best players of American old-time music - Carl Jones, Erynn Marshall, and Bobb Head.

Over the Mountain

Kenny Jackson and Friends

Some of my favorite old-time tunes and songs, learned from some of the sources whose music I most admire (albeit with a few new tunes that came to me), and joined by three exceptional old-time musicians who happen to be the best of friends. I chose simple and unadorned settings that I hope express the most authentic heart of this rugged and beautiful old-time music.
