Bluegrass Breakdown: Revonah Records, Part One


We’ll be jumping into the rich musical legacy of a small record company located in the hamlet of Ferndale, in the town of Liberty, New York. Between 1971 and 1987, the company issued 49 LPs featuring the likes of Roger Bellow, the Shenandoah Cutups, Walter Hensley, Clinton King, and Del McCoury. We’ll be taking a gander at the first 18 of those albums, in the order they were released.
