about

One day in the early sixties, on the way to track down the maker of my old mountain dulcimer (a fruitless task, as it turned out) in Mountain City, Tennessee, I stopped at the general store in Thorn Hill, Tennessee, and asked if they sold banjo strings. Having heard that they did indeed sell such things, I asked, “Who buys them?” That was my introduction to Claude Wolfenbarger and Addie Leffew, who played 5-string banjo in two very different styles, both learning experiences for me as a budding banjo player. Listen for yourself! – Peter Hoover
