Description

All four of the 2014 releases for one discounted price:

  • Howard Miller – Sixty Years of North Carolina Fiddling (FRC706) – Howard Miller (1912-1990) of Ashe County, North Carolina, was taught to fiddle by his father, Charles, and grandfather, Monroe Miller. These sessions establish Howard Miller as a prime interpreter of the G.B. Grayson repertoire and as a dynamic fiddler in his own right whose talent remained undiminished through the years.
  • Albert Hash, Volume 2 (FRC707) – Albert Hash (1917-1983) was a beloved fiddler and instrument maker from Grayson County, Virginia. This disc features Albert’s takes on different old fiddle tunes as well as one of his early bands, The Virginia Carolina Boys from their weekly radio show in the 1960s. (See also FRC411 Albert Hash.)
  • Lee Stoneking – Missouri Fiddling and Banjo Playing (FRC708) – Lee Stoneking (1907-1989) was among the best fiddlers in west central Missouri. Lee began learning from his own father around the age of seven. These recordings, made on a visit by Brad Leftwich, Linda Higginbotham, and Kenny Jackson in 1985, include tunes not represented elsewhere, as well as samples of his fine up-picking banjo style.
  • Rector Hicks – Sugar in the Morning (FRC709) – Rector Hicks, fiddler, was born in West Virginia and lived in Akron Ohio. These recordings include his unique versions of familiar tunes, rarely-heard hymns, waltzes, and marches, some Ed Haley pieces, and two fine self-composed tunes.
