Country-music mainstays Robin and Linda Williams first came to Mountain Stage more than 20 years ago, and have since made more than a dozen appearances on the show. Here, the Williamses perform songs from their latest album, Buena Vista, with longtime members of their "fine group": Jim Watson on bass and Chris Brashear on mandolin and fiddle.
The first song, "Maybelle's Guitar and Monroe's Mandolin," is particularly appropriate for this segment. The Birthplace of Country Music Alliance invited Mountain Stage back to Bristol, Tenn./Va., where the Carter Family (including Mother Maybelle Carter) recorded its first successful sides for the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1927. Those sessions also gave birth to stars such as Jimmie Rodgers and The Stoneman Family, among many others.
This segment originally aired on October 15, 2009.
