12th September – anniversary of legendary country banjoist and singer, Wade Mainer (Wade Echard Mainer, Apr 21, 1907 – Sep 12, 2011) whose career spanned nearly six decades. Our CD 454 features a selection of his early recordings with various line ups (Wade Mainer & Associates – BACM CD 454); CD 122 has him as as a member of brother J.E.’s Mountaineers (J. E. MAINER’S MOUNTAINEERS 1935-1939. BACM 122). A few other tracks appear on various anthologies including CD 364 (OLD TIME TUNES & SONGS Vol. 2 1924-1954) and one of our King Label collections (ANOTHER TASTE OF KING – Recordings 1946-1954). Plenty for fans of old-timey and bluegrass banjo from this versatile  and influential stylist.
