Born in 1986 in Mt. Airy, NC. Great-grandfather Henry Edmonds played oldtimey banjo and french harp with his father Tom Edmonds who fiddled. Legend has it they won all of the old fiddler's contests in Surry County around the turn of the century. According to my great uncle (Henry's son), Henry yanked the frets out of his banjo. Henry would later make music with neighbors Esker Hutchins and Lee Jackson and strongly admire the playing of Uncle Charlie Lowe. I took up guitar at 11 playing in a finger style similar to piedmont blues but mainly playing sacred numbers. At 13 I took up banjo in the finger picking and also learned to clawhammer. I accompanied Benton Flippen throughout the last decade of Flippen's life, often playing banjo or guitar as needed. I also play fiddle in the oldtime manner.
