Description

From the collection of Andy Cahan

The front cover, showing the exuberance with which George Pegram entertained crowds at the Galax Fiddler’s Convention, gives some idea of the liveliness and energy of Galax musicians in the 1960s. In those days Fred Cockerham often joined Pegram, and tracks 12-17 are as strong as anything Fred played with the Camp Creek Boys. In order to locate these recordings, Boyd Hawks told Andy Cahan “just look in the back of my TV repair shop.” Only after hours of climbing over mountains of discarded electronic parts did Andy finally find the tapes. Tracks 1-9 were discovered deeply buried among Andy’s Norman Edmonds tapes (FRC301-2). As luck would have it, you don’t have to undergo any of these obstacles, you have but to put this CD in your player to unlock these treasures. – Ray Alden
