Rediscovering Riddle

Record #:
Accompaniment to the Menconi article, “Resurrecting a Sound” in Our State’s February 2012 issue is a profile of hillbilly musician Leslie Riddle. Riddle’s work included a partnership with country music pioneer A.P. Carter in preserving previously unrecorded Appalachians tunes. Riddle is experiencing a popularity renaissance through individuals such as Traditional Voice Group’s founder John Doyle. Doyle’s nonprofit preserves the Toe River region’s cultural and musical heritage, represented in musicians such as Burnsville’s native son.
