  • $5.00


Banjo picker Olen Gardner discovered an old tape from 1957 made by a short-lived band that included Gardner, Wayne Dawson, Ollan Horton and fiddler Wayburn Johnson—they played briefly over TV stations in Roanoke, Va. and Winston-Salem. Sound quality is not the best (taken from old cassette) but it gives an idea of what was being played by local Bluegrass bands at that relatively early date. Straightforward traditional versions of just 8 songs & tunes: ON & ON, WHITE HOUSE BLUES, LITTLE WHITE CHURCH, BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND, BILL CHEATHEM, etc
