It's About Time

Bett Padgett, It's About Time CD cover
After a 'dead period', known as 'writers' block', the banjo brought music back to life for me. This CD title song is about time, really! And it was about time that I started enjoying writing music again. This disc is very basic, just me and lots of banjo, mandolin, guitars. It is filled with tales of the Civil War based on letters written home, the settling of NC in the 1700's, plus many songs of life, living, love and loss. The sound can be described as a blend of folk, Celtic, Old-time, mostly because of the instruments. The CD promises to make you smile, laugh, and shed a few tears along the listen. With the exception of "How Can I Keep From Singing?", "Oh, Susanna!" and "The Water is Wide", (all have been favorites for years), all songs are original.   click here for lyrics
