Mother's Boys
Home Among
The Hills


"Mother's Boys" includes Rick Cunha, whose warm vocal stylings reflect his Hawiian roots, David Dawson, autoharpist and singer from New Mexico and a fellow band member in Rick's 1960s group, Hearts and Flowers, bassist David Jackson, who also plays piano and accordian, and Peter Feldmann, multi-instrumentalist and singer. Jackson, Dawson, and Cunha were members of the seminal folk rock group Hearts & Flowers in the 1960s. They have performed with Emmy Lou Harris, Hoyt Axton, Mason Williams, Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, and Rose Maddox among many others.

The CD project contains a selection of songs recorded by Sara, Maybelle, and AP Carter, some well-known, some quite rare, between 1927 and 1941. They are considered a major bedrock of American country music. The Carters are the subject of a new documentary film, The Winding Stream, released just recently. Peter and Rick selected the included material based on its musicality and variety. Mother's Boys had help from friends on certain tracks during the 6-year recording process, including Aubrey Richmond, Maria Smiley, Fred Sokolow, Susie Glaze, and Laurie Lewis.
