Presentation by Greg Reish about restoration of the Haley Family recordings.
Ed Haley was a legendary early 20th century Appalachian fiddler whose music has influenced generations of old-time and bluegrass musicians. Although he never recorded commercially, in the late 1940s Ed and his wife Ella made a series of home recordings on lacquer discs. In this workshop, co-producer and Spring Fed Records director Greg Reish describes the painstaking process of restoring and reissuing these rare recordings in a landmark boxed set released in 2022. He will also discuss the Haley family’s complex and lasting legacy in the canon of American old-time music.
