Description

These recordings, made by Peter Hoover in the early sixties, showcase the playing of brothers Fulton (fiddle) and Sidna (banjo) Myers of Five Forks, Virginia, a tiny hamlet located between Hillsville and Galax. Their playing is reminiscent of that of Tommy Jarrell and Fred Cockerham of nearby Mt. Airy, North Carolina, but includes several tunes unique to them, notably Twin Sisters. The recordings were made at local general store, the Myers house lacking electricity, which accounts for some of the background noise. – Peter Hoover
