Robin and Linda Williams
These Old Dark Hills

Redhouse Records

This husband-wife duo premiered their rootsy blend of bluegrass, old-time, and acoustic country music on A Prairie Home Companion in 1975, the same year they released their first album; this is their 22nd. Both are gifted songwriters whose tunes are covered by friends like Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Kathy Mattea. A more true-blue example of Americana you'll never hear than the title track, with its evocation of their mountain home.
