Elizabeth Cotten – Shake Sugaree

Folk-revival legend Elizabeth Cotten was discovered while working as a maid, helping raise Pete, Peggy and Mike Seeger. Her songs were a profound influence on Taj Mahal and many others, and this new collection—with extensive 28-page liner notes and 10 previously unreleased tracks—provides a heaping helping of syncopated, sugar-shakin’ acoustic sweetness, perfect for a quiet morning on the front porch.
