The Carter Brothers and Son from Monroe County in NE Mississippi were recorded in Memphis, TN onto a 78pm record in 1928 by Vocalion Records

George (b. 1869) and Andrew  Carter (b. 1878) were brothers and primarily cotton farmers. Their son/nephew Jimmie played guitar.

Their sound is some of the wildest in that era of recorded old time bands with their driving twin fiddles which sometimes gets out of sync from each other, non sensible vocals that become another instrument, and the amazing guitar runs.
