Description

This CD honors one of North Carolina’s great traditional musicians, Fred Cockerham. Fred was born in 1905 in the Round Peak community of Surry County, North Carolina. He learned to fiddle by sneaking practice on his brother’s fiddle, later becoming a professional musician. Fred changed his original “framming” banjo style to emulate the high precision rhythmic technique of Round Peak’s great clawhammer player, Charlie Lowe. This CD presents a wide ranging sample of Fred’s expressive fiddle, banjo and singing abilities.
