The Unbroken Circle: Songs of the West Virginia Coalfields
The Unbroken Circle is a collection of original songs, written in the tradition, that document events in the coalfields of West Virginia from the early 1900’s. This self-produced album is a collection of epic songs documenting the Buffalo Creek Flood of 1972, the 1912 Miners’ Strike in Kanawha County, and various events associated with the Mine Wars of 1921.
Tim O’Brien, Grammy Award Winning Singer-Songwriter: "Tom Breiding's bluegrass flavored CD "The Unbroken Circle" provides a much needed look at the story of the West Virginia coalfields. Like the best historical fiction, these true stories in song provide easy access to a culture whose trials and tribulations are too often ignored."
Tom T. Hall, Country Music Legend: "Shades of Woody Guthrie-These recordings contribute to the historical understanding of this much misunderstood region."
