Boogertown Gap is Ruth Barber and Keith Watson, a wife/husband duo and sometimes band. They specialize in the music that was played and sung by early pioneers and settlers of the Great Smoky Mountains and vicinity. Ever hear of Juliann Johnson, Pretty Little Widow, Cripple Creek, The Farmer's Curst Wife, Barbara Allen.. and so on? Well, there's lots more of these tunes in their repertoire: old Celtic ballads, fiddle tunes, American compositions, Negro spirituals, and those ever present obscure unknown traditional tunes!! It's all old music and most often called Old-Time, or around these parts, Mountain Music. Regarding their recent release 'Old-Time Appalachian Christmas' one fan wrote, 'I must tell you how much I am enjoying the Christmas CD! After several times listening to it I continue to choose a different favorite. You have done a wonderful job with musical selection and with arrangements. The vocals are absolutely beautiful, yet simple. The instrumental selections are fun and fresh. The selections evoke a true spirit of Christmas, one not laden with commercialism. How refreshing!'
