Song Of The Day #1007
Country Roots continues on Ranch Radio with the Kessinger Brothers and their 1930 recording of Everybody To The Punchin'. Although billed as the Kessinger Brothers, Clark Kessinger is the fiddler and his nephew, Luches Kessinger is the guitarist.
The All Music Guide writes, " Clark Kessinger played like few country fiddlers, with a clear intonation and a range that dazzled onlookers and fellow musicians. He was such a daunting talent that, as Charles Wolfe cited in his essay on the duo, other fiddlers would simply decline to compete with him in contests."
