Wade Mainer obituary. One of the last survivors of 'hillbilly' music's radio heyday of the 1930s. The latter was included by the folklorist John Lomax in a pioneering record album of 1941, Smoky Mountain Ballads, which introduced Wade and other hillbilly performers to urban folk music circles. In that year, Alan Lomax, John's son, invited Wade's band to play for the Roosevelts at an "evening of American folklore" at the White House. Wade and JE (Joseph Emmett) grew up in a farming family in North Carolina. During the 1920s, employed as cotton-mill hands in Concord, they played music informally for fellow workers, JE on fiddle and Wade on banjo. Once established on radio and records, Wade helped to keep the sound of the banjo ringing through country music, despite the intense competition of guitar-based acts such as the Delmore Brothers.

Complete King Recordings. Exclusive Prime pricing. Complete King Recordings. This was a gift to a Wade Mainer fan, who was absolutely thrilled to receive it. Someone had bought one for me a couple of years ago because I love banjo music so I bought it for my friend. I knew he didn't have it because I had seen all of his Wade Mainter collection and it wasn't included.
