Abstract:

"This book tells - for the first time - the story of Charlie Bowman, a musician from East Tennessee, who was a major influence on the distinctive fiddle style definitive of country music of the 1920s and 1930s. Charlie, along with three of his brothers and two of his daughters, were part of the Columbia Records "Johnson City Sessions" of 1928 and 1929." "The farmer-turned-musician was one of the pioneers who helped shape and develop a vital American musical genre. Bowman was acquainted with many musical luminaries of that colorful era, including the legendary Carter Family." "But this is not simply the biography of one man. Fiddlin' Charlie Bowman is the portrayal of a large family, a close-knit mountain community, a geographic area, and a specific musical variety defined as old-time traditional Appalachian music."--Jacket.
