Crayne Musicians

Crayne String Band

My article in The Crittenden Press this week will include the picture on the right. It is will be about old time Fiddler's contest and Singing conventions.

This picture is a wonderful old picture of some of Crayne's hometown families.

On the left is Jonas Rushing, with guitar, although he was better remembered for his fiddling talents. He won several fiddling contests around the area.

Next is Elbert Brown with his fiddle. Everyone in the Crayne area new Mr. Brown and his fiddle. He also played at many on the local and school get togethers.
Mr. Hughey McCaslin, played the Base fiddle.

Mr. Nat Sutton, in this picture played the mandoline. He also played the fiddle.
