The Old-Time Tiki Parlour is proud to present the latest CD & DVD Set release from North Carolina fiddle and banjo legend Kirk Sutphin. “Devil in the Strawstack” features 27 tracks of classic North Carolina stringband music performed by Kirk Sutphin with Travis Stuart and Tom Sauber. The set also sports a beautiful booklet with liner notes written by Kirk Sutphin and artwork by Texas artist Howard Rains. The music was filmed, recorded and edited by David Bragger.


Kirk Sutphin is a living legend in the world of old-time fiddle and banjo music. He is the “real thing,” having grown up in the tradition and having mastered the old sounds. Kirk grew up in Walkertown, North Carolina and at age eight decided to follow his grandfather’s footsteps as a fiddler. As a teenager Kirk studied regularly with Tommy Jarrell and is now recognized as the reincarnation of the Tommy Jarrell style. He is also a masterful banjo player in the style of Fred Cockerham and Charlie Poole. This recording and film focuses on Kirk’s exceptional instrumental music abilities and is 100% proof that real old-time music lives in the sounds of the elders as preserved and transmitted through players like Kirk Sutphin.

Kirk is joined by the amazing talents of old-time masters Travis Stuart and Tom Sauber on banjo and guitar. These recordings showcase some of the greatest old-time duets and stringband recordings ever put to record.
