Online exclusive! Wilson Douglas is a mountain fiddler from Clay County, West Virginia, a region abounding in traditional lore and music relatively inaccessible on commercial recordings. On this record Wilson plays a variety of tunes found by the latter half of the nineteenth century in and around Webster and Clay Counties. He learned most of these from French Carpenter, a fiddler whose family composed or played all the versions heard on this album. Wilson's fiddle is backed by the driving guitar accompaniment of Douglas Meade, a young musician living in Alexandria, Virginia, and by the versatile banjo playing of Roy O. 'Speedy' Tolliver, a native of Konnarock, Virginia.
