Welcome to our Website!

Many people are not aware of this great old-time banjo player and his many contributions to the progress and development of banjo music.  Some who know about him say that since Dock learned so much from black musicians, he is a bridge between the nineteenth century black players and the twentieth century southern white banjo players. Others admire him for his unique and interesting playing and singing style, praising him as an innovator.   Whatever may be the truth, Dock is well worth a listen, and if you have never heard him play and sing, we encourage you to contact the Smithsonian for a listing of available Folkways recordings.  Read more here.

Kate O'Neill Peters Sturgill  learned to play the organ at age seven and the guitar in her teens.  She was also a singer and songwriter, playing with both "The Lonesome Pine Trailers" and "The Cumberland Valley Girls."  Read more here.
