It's About Time


After a ‘dead period’, known as ‘writers’ block’, the banjo brought music back to life for Bett. This CD title song is about time and it was about time that she started enjoying writing music again. This album is sparsely produced with only banjo, mandolin, guitars and Bett’s vocals. 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. Produced by Bett Padgett
