Excerpts from Interviews with Dock Boggs, Legendary Banjo Player and Singer

Mike Seeger interviews Dock Boggs, a Virginia coal miner, banjo player and singer of old-time Appalachian mountain music and blues. Boggs once garnered a record deal with Brunswick to record 24 tracks, but he only completed eight before quitting and returning to Virginia during the 1920s. He was all but forgotten as an artist until Seeger rediscovered him in the 1960s.
