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.
