Uncle Eck Dunford (Alexander Dunford, Carroll County, Virginia, May 30, 1875 - June 26, 1953) was an American early country, fiddler, singer and guitarist. He was recorded by Ralph Peer on the famous Bristol Sessions. The Bristol sessions are considered the "Big Bang" of modern country music. They were held in 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee by Victor Talking Machine Company. Dunford's "Old Shoes and Leggins", is included on Harry Smith's 1952 folksong collection Anthology of American Folk Music. Read more on Last.fm

Uncle Eck Dunford recorded several sides for Victor during the late '20s, though he's best-known for his partnership with Ernest Stoneman (of the Stoneman Family). Dunford and his band the Bogtrotters were based in Galax, Virginia, a city renowned as one of the centers of old-timey music and famous for its fiddler's conventions.

Quite a colorful personality according to local sources, Dunford appeared on many of "Pop" Stoneman's recordings, though he only recorded sparingly on his own. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
