Comments
Old-time string band quartet from Galax, Virginia formed by Da Costa Woltz. Members were Ben Jarrell (singer and fiddle), Frank Jenkins (lead banjo), Price Goodson (harmonica, ukelele, and vocals on two sides), and Woltz (2nd banjo). The Southern Broadcasters’ recorded legacy was the 18 songs and tunes cut for Gennett in Richmond, Indiana on May 5-7, 1927. Although Woltz formed the quartet, he was a minor player and most of the 18 recordings were credited to Ben Jarrell or Frank Jenkins plus band accompaniment. Woltz and Jarrell never recorded again nor did the band perform together after 1927. Jenkins went on to form the influential Frank Jenkins' Pilot Mountaineers (which included his son, Oscar, on banjo, and a young Ernest V. Stoneman on vocals/guitar).
