Clarence Ashley (1895-1967) was a legendary singer and banjo player who helped
introduce old time country music to audiences throughout the USA. He recorded for
Columbia Records in 1929, was featured on Harry Smith's 'Anthology Of American Folk
Music' in 1952, and toured the US in the 1960s. Jalopy's vinyl-only release was
produced in 2016 by Peter K. Siegel, from tapes he personally recorded in 1963 at
the Greenwich Village folk club Gerdes Folk City. John Cohen, founding member of
The New Lost City Ramblers, wrote the liner notes and provided never-before-seen
photographs of Ashley in Greenwich Village. A 16-page illustrated booklet includes
additional notes by Peter K. Siegel and Eli Smith.
