Fiddlin’ John Carson (March 23, 1868 – December 11, 1949) was an American old time fiddler and an early-recorded country musician.

In early June 1923, Polk C. Brockman, an Atlanta furniture store owner, who had been instrumental in the distribution of records for Okeh, went to New York to work out a new business deal with Okeh Records. Later, in New York, he was asked if he knew of any artist in Atlanta that could justify a recording trip to Georgia. Brockman promised to return with an answer. A few days later, he was watching a movie followed by a silent newsreel at the Palace Theater in Times Square. The newsreel contained footage of Fiddlin’ John Carson from an old time fiddler’s contest in Virginia. Brockman wrote in his notebook: "Record Fiddlin’ John Carson".At his next meeting with Okeh Records Board, he persuaded Ralph Peer to go ahead and record Carson.

About June 14, 1923 (date is uncertain), Carson made his recording debut in an empty building on Nassau Street in Atlanta, cutting two sides, "The Little Old Log Cabin In The Lane" and "The Old Hen Cackled and the Rooster’s going to Crow." Peer didn’t like the singing style of Carson and described it "pluperfect awful" but he was persuaded by Brockman to press five hundred for him to distribute. The recording was immediately sold out from the stage of the next Fiddler’s convention on July 13, 1923.Peer, realizing Carson’s potential, immediately invited Carson to New York for another recording session.



“When The Saint Go Marchin’ In”







Although considered a top-flight Cajun musician, Wallace Cheese Read was never really a professional musician perhaps out of fear that critics would make jokes about his name. Cajun fans might savor his small but superb discography as one relaxed section of the evening or one of a series of courses in a French meal: a little cheese, a little reading, a little Cheese Read, and so forth.

The Cajun identification with "home music," or the importance of creating music in a non-professional setting, was the essence of this performer. He liked playing his music at home better than doing some kind of gig and best of all were the lively parties with a few friends and a band set up in the corner. Cheese Read was known as a booming, powerful singer and a fiddler whose bow work was more accurate than the best of Robin Hood’s merry men. A mainstay of the Southwest Louisiana scene, he was a musician whose work was recorded with the sporadic randomness of a series of satellite photographs.
