I don't have that much information on him and I think Charlie Walden's Missouri Fiddling page might. I just want to throw him out there to you and suggest you give him a listen. He played in both Old Time and Bluegrass styles. This puts him outside the purist camp but if you don't let that bother you, I think you will find that his playing is excellent. Betse Ellis learned from him back in the day. Others as well.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif He has been gone for several years now.
Check him out. He has some recordings available out there that I enjoy a great deal.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Yeah I know. Bluegrass content warning. Frankly Scarlet, I don't give a damn. LOL! http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
You can't find any youtube clips. That's too bad. Oh, I should balance this out by giving my opinion that there is too much banjo on many of his tracks. Bluegrass style. Sigh...
So, please look him up and give him a listen. He should not be forgotten.
Here is a link for you
