Description

Frank George is a West Virginia icon. No fiddler, banjo player, hammered dulcimer player or bagpiper grows up in West Virginia without knowing the name Frank George. Frank and his wife Jane have founded festivals, supported local historical events and been the backbone of West Virginia traditional music for fifty years. Forty years ago, when these recordings were made, Alan Jabbour remarked that Frank had forgotten more tunes than Alan knew, saying further that Frank could play well over 1000 tunes. Frank knew, played with and shared the West Virginia fiddling tradition with French Carpenter, Ira Mullins, Doc White, and Virginia fiddler, John Fitzgerald Hilt, who appears on this recording. Frank George personifies traditional West Virginia Old Time Music. – Fred Coon
