South Turkey Creek, which became something of a Mecca for old time music fans, was home to the legendary singer, banjo player and fiddler Bascom Lamar Lunsford, who had first recorded in 1924, as well as that of Walter 'Red' Parham, an extraordinary harmonica player and guitarist (and colorful figure). It was also the inspiration and occasional resting place for the late George Pegram, the much acclaimed banjo player and singer. There’s no mistaking the authentic sound captured on this old time music classic—these musicians learned this music firsthand.
