Fiddler Wilson Douglas was born in 1922 on a farm in rural Clay County West Virginia in an area known as Rush Fork. Wilson was an accomplished fiddler with an intricate personal style and an ancient repertoire. Descended from several generations of Clay County Douglases, Wilson was also closely related to the local Morris and Carpenter families who together represent some of West Virginia's deepest musical traditions. Wilson's musicianship and his open and generous personality helped to make him a central figure in West Virginia's traditional music community. Wilson Douglas passed away in 1999.
