12 June – remembering old time fiddler J. E. Mainer (Joseph Emmett Mainer, July 20, 1898 – June 12, 1971). His band “J.E.Mainer and his Crazy Mountaineers” began radio performing in 1933, with JE’s brother Wade Mainer on banjo and Zeke Morris on guitar leading to their first recording contract in 1935. One of the great mountain fiddlers, J.E. also played old-timey banjo and was a fine singer. > > >
