"The Stoneman's and Stoneman groups have been around playing music for over 100 years. The autoharp has been in their families too all that time. I think Daddy was the first one to take it real serious though and go to New York with it. He had lots of nerve. And since that time, I've kept it as much as I could since Daddy passed away."|

To Order This Album:
The name of country music pioneer Enerst V. "Pop" Stoneman is legend. His daughter Patsy, keenly mindful of this heritage, has dedicated a lifetime to the preservation and dissemination of her father's music. Although she is now retired from the public limelight, her love for her family, its history, and its music continues to shine brightly. In this recording, Patsy Stoneman, in her delightful and charming way, shares stories from her childhood, anecdotes of family history, and the tunes which not only molded her family, but most importantly shaped the beginnings of America's Ccountry Music.
