Full Album
While Eternal Ages Roll
The Kelly Family
Sun-Ray Records
SR 1009 LP
1976

From the back cover: The Kelly Family consist of, Nathan, Simon, Christine and Karlyn. The Kelly Family may be new to you, however, they are still known by country enthusiasts. When Christine Kelly was 16 years of age, she and her husband, Nathan J. Kelly and his three teen-age brothers started playing music and singing to entertain others, over the Hazard, Kentucky Radio Broadcast Station.

Their unique Blue Grass, Country Style Music caught on fast. Soon they were performing over three Radio Broadcast Stations at Knoxville, Tenn. During this time they made live appearances on stages with well known artists of the Grand Old Opera such as Chet Atkins, Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Cotton Gaylon, Archie Campbell, The Carter Family and many others. They entertained others in Nashville, Tenn. at the Grand Old Opera until 1950. Christine became home-sick for Kentucky. On their way home they stopped over in Lexington, Kentucky. They started a new program entertaining over WLEX, WLAP and WVLK Radio Broadcast Stations. This lasted for five years. Nathan and his brother Simon acquired a top job working for our U.S. Government and took the Kelly Family into a long retirement.

Since resuming country entertainment, The Kelly Family have appeared on TV and Radio programs. This group is recognized as one of the first to promote the Blue Grass Style Music. The Library Of Congress, of the United States did select this group of honorable singers to record an album entitled. The Early Days Of Blue Grass, This was recorded and produced by them.


Christine Kelly wrote most of the songs on this album. Jimmy Price Music Publisher of Lexington, Kentucky seems to have been promoter of this album and the Kelly Family at this time, holding rights to all of the song titles, selling sheet music and writing the jacket notes.

Rite Records of Cincinnati, Ohio produced and printed the jacket.
