Australia and New Zealand. Even as many commercial bluegrass bands in the 1970s were being influenced by Nashville or folk rock sounds, the Virginia Mountain Boys stuck to the traditional bluegrass sounds that were pioneered decades earlier. Eschewing the Dobro favored by other bands of the time, for example, the band’s sound relies heavily on the simple banjo picking and hard-driving rhythm of traditional Appalachian mountain music. Glen Neaves leads with lonesome, bittersweet singing and fiddle playing inspired by G. B. Grayson, a traditional mountain fiddler from North Carolina. Virginia Mountain Boys.
As a young man Jack Cooke played and sang with Bill Monroe, but he will be best remembered as the bass player in Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Boys. He grew up in Norton, in south-western Virginia. The town was the home of several distinguished early country musicians, notably the singer and banjo player Dock Boggs, a distant relative for whom Jack worked as a driver in the older man's later years. Jack's father, too, had played the banjo, and his eight brothers and sisters all acquired musical skills.
