Personalities | Henry Whitter | Early Years of Hillbilly | Country
(Harmonica, guitar, vocals, 1892–1941)
Competent harmonica player, average singer and guitarist, Whitter holds a place in history as one of country music’s pioneering disc artists, recording in 1923 strong sellers like ‘Fox Chase’ and ‘The Wreck Of The Old ’97’, which enabled him to quit his job at a Fries, Virginia, textile mill and become a professional musician. Later he accompanied the fiddler and singer G. B. Grayson (1888–1930) on some classic ballad recordings, but his career withered after the 1920s.
