Coleman Family

With a deep debt to the Carter Family, the duo of Celestine and Carolyn Sue Coleman clung intensely to their Southern roots even while laying a new foundation in Toledo, Ohio. If not for a complete disregard of tune, neither “Peace On Earth” nor “People Had It Hard” would be out of place on Heehaw or Hayride, but both are clearly more Chitlin’ Circuit then Grand Ole Opry. Proving he was just at home in the country as the city, the Organics’ Arthur Griswold provided the out of tune guitar.
