Jim & Joyce Cauthen at Kentuck Festival 2012


Jim & Joyce Cauthen at Kentuck Festival 2012


Alabama Music Office.com goes to Kentuck Park in Northport, Alabama to attend the 41st Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts.
Joyce Cauthen learned to play guitar (as an adult) in order to back up the fiddling of her husband, Jim. Throughout the past 25 years she has performed with two old-time string bands, the Red Mountain White Trash and Flying Jenny and her playing can be heard on 6 CDs produced by those groups. You can listen to samples on cdbaby.com, if you like. She has taught guitar at the Alabama Folk School and the Augusta Heritage Center.
JIM CAUTHEN
I have played the fiddle since the late 1970s and played in several string bands.   I currently play with both the Red Mountain White Trash and Flying Jenny, both of which have released recordings (you can find all of the recordings, 4 Trash and 2 Jenny, at cdbaby.com where you can listen to excerpts for free).  My wife, Joyce (Guitar from Scratch ) and I sometimes perform as a duet.
