:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Talk about Piney Woods Gal, with Charlie Higgins (who mentions Uncle Eck Dunford) and Wade Ward. Charlie's ancestry (Irish) and playing (started playing banjo, Emmett Lundy put him on the fiddle); Wade Ward on playing dances, personal history; Bob Carpenter's background and playing (played rodeos and nightclubs in Montana with Charlie and toured overseas with the army). Wonderful. [Source: Editor]
