Singing at the Clothesline

Our Music, Our Mountains, Our Memories

In 2010 I went to Song of the Mountains at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Va. where I got to meet and photograph the legendary musician and singer of our Old time songs, Doc Watson. I had admired him since I was in my early 20's and heard him at the Galax Fiddlers Convention. I began to take more and more portraits of our local mountain musicians and started thinking how this would make a great book of portraits and interviews. So, In 2012 I started going around and interviewing all the renowned and not so well known musicians and singers in the region of Southwest, Va and neighboring states. Many of them came to the Reed Creek Farm, here in the town of Wytheville, Va. where I was born and had their portraits taken at this beautiful 200 year old farm house.

To make a long story short! My dream of writing this book has now come true and 300 books are being delivered to my doorstep tomorrow! It is a beautiful fine art, top quality book! 9X11" hard bound with 222 pages of portraits, interviews and wonderful memories of the musical memories here in our beloved mountains!
