about

Albert Hash was an old-time fiddle player and luthier from the Whitetop Mountain area of Grayson County,VA. His primary influences on the fiddle were Corbett Stamper, G.B. Grayson, and his uncle George Finley. Albert began playing at a very early age and founded the Whitetop Mountain Band which continues to the present day. He influenced a great many people, many of whom still play his tunes and style today. He is remembered not only for his great fiddling, but also for his kindness to all. – Kilby Spencer
