Oscar hadn't played much since the 1930s when I got him playing with Eldia again. Their parents, Frank and Molly, both played fiddle. The family band in the 20s and 30s was Jim on fiddle, Oscar on banjo, and Eldia on guitar. Sister Elzia was the best fiddler - Roy Acuff tried to get her to join his band, but she wouldn't. I recorded her children as the Bice Family on the Pine Breeze recordings
