He played regularly for dances around western North Carolina and was often featured by Bascom Lamar Lunsford at Asheville’s Mountain Dance and Folk Festival. On behalf of the Field Recorders’ Collective, Matt’s father, Tim Brown, re-mastered Peter Hoover’s recordings of Marcus Martin, made in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including the source for this track." — Greg Reish
