Tommy Jarrell with Bert Dickens
Posted 5/18/2007 2:41:35 PM
Photo taken by Alice Gerrard ca. 1983, possibly Galax. Bert is playing a 50s or 60s "bowtie" Gibson mastertone---obviously it was not her first banjo, but it was her only banjo at the time I knew her. She was frail & the banjo weighed about as much as she did!
Bert played dance tunes in a spare, elegant clawhammer style but she also 2-fingerpicked tunes such as Cleveland's March, Little Black Dog, and County Jail
