about

These recordings feature Norman Edmonds, (1889-1976) of Hillsville, Virginia, on the fiddle and accompanied by his band The Old Timers (Rufus Quesinberry on banjo and his sons John, Cecil and Paul Edmonds on guitars). The selections are remastered from copies of the original tapes, recorded by Edmonds’ son Rush for 15 minute programs heard on Galax radio every Saturday morning from the mid 1950’s until around 1970. On the last few tracks, Nelson Edmonds plays bass and Charles Hawkes plays bluegrass banjo. The Edmonds family generously granted Andy Cahan permission to copy the original tapes during the 1980s.
