Marvin Gaster is the last in a line of Lee County, North Carolina, two-finger banjo pickers. The Gaster family has a long history of involvement with music and dancing, dating back to at least Marvin's great-grandfather, 'Fiddlin' John' Morris Francis Gaster (1853-1942). Raised by his great-aunt and uncle in the farm culture of the early 1900s, as an adult Gaster has been active in preserving the music of that culture. Today, Marvin Gaster, with his banjo and fiddle in tow, is a familiar sight at southern fiddler's conventions. Marvin finished in the money at the prestigious Clifftop competition in the summer of 1995 and has also taken home awards from Fiddler's Grove.
