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.


Don Richardson

Don Richardson (b. 1878 - d. 1953), recorded for Columbia (1914), Victor, Edison, Gennett, and Pathé. Although not a rural old-time musician, he is believed to be the first musician to record traditional old-time songs.
