"Growing up in the Piedmont section of North Carolina almost everyone I knew had a piano in the living room. It was not only there for children to learn how to play the instrument but also for families to gather around and sing old gospel hymns. I think this new "Jim Avett and Family" album is a reflection of that. This collection of songs is a tip of the hat to a lost Southern art form." - Dolphus Ramseur
"Jim Avett was raised by a soft-spoken Methodist minister and a dedicated mother with (very) above average skills when seated at the piano. Between their living influence, our parents love and care, and a glowing sense of community provided by our small town church, this record was an inevitability. For my siblings and me, the prospect of recording an album together gave us an opportunity to add something to the family photo album...a document so our children and their own will always have another little connection to their kin (a link in the chain, as Dad says). On this occasion, it is the sound we made with our father when we sang together in the living room." - Seth Avett
