Round Peak Style  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:47This topic inspired much debate among the Banjo-L faithful. Riley Baugus, who lives in the Round Peak area writes... "Let me see if I can shed any light on this whole thing. Round Peak is just that, it is an area in Surrey County, NC nearly halfway between Mt.Airy and Galax just off Hwy 89. It is actually one of the mountain peaks that makes up the beginnings of the Blue Ridge Mountains above the foothills. Many people from this area played a style of banjo called RoundPeak style. Tommy Jarrell, Fred Cockerham, Kyle Creed, Charlie Lowe, Dix Freeman, Gilmer Woodruff, lots of players and most of the ones that I have mentioned can be heard on recordings."
