With fiddle, guitar, banjo and outstanding Texas-style mountain singing, The Lone Star String Band will perform old-time music at 7:30 pm Friday, June 23, at the Allen Public Library.

First recorded in the 1920s by record companies who did not have a name for the genre, old-time music was sometimes labeled "hillbilly" music. Its rich, varied sounds and lyrics were popular with the common folks. Once performed on porches on Saturday nights and at dances throughout America, old fiddle tunes and songs from the late 19th century and early 20th century will now resonant in the library’s auditorium.

Old-time music is often confused with bluegrass, which came along in the 1940s and was made famous by Bill Monroe. The music the Lone Star String Band plays has deeper roots.
