The main aim of this site is to document as many artists as possible that played traditional old-time music and to supply photos of these musicians. The spread ranges from the early 20th century to the late 1930s and focuses not only on recording artists, but also on artists that played on radio or did personal appereances. Any additions and corrections are welcomed.


Henry Gilliland

Henry Clay Gilliland (b. March 11, 1845 near Granby, MO - d. April 21, 1924), considered to be, along with Eck Robertson, the first old-time musician that made a record. Actually, Don Richardson seems to be the first. Recorded with Eck Robertson for Victor (1922).
