Clifford Glenn has skillfully made fretless mountain banjos and dulcimers in the Sugar Grove community since the 1950s. He comes for a unique family instrument-making tradition that stretches over four generations to the 19th-century. He also represents a large cultural tradition of the area around Beech Mountain and the Watauga River valley. In homes along the labyrinth of winding dirt roads in and around the area, musicians from several prolific families played old-time music, told Jack Tales, and made traditional crafts.
