=1927= Charlie Poole & the NC Ramblers

Charlie Poole – a bodacious itinerant musician who transcended his Piedmont roots as he drifted around the sweet sunny South with his North Carolina Ramblers. But if his only claim to fame was playing barn dances, harvest balls, radio programs, and men’s club smokers – not to mention street corners for spare change, or as "shills" at fiddle contests they won handily – his colorful yet star-crossed life might never have passed into the realm of legend.
