Eastern Lincoln Historical Society
Press Release

DENVER - Homer Lee “Pappy” Sherrill was an old-time bluegrass fiddler whose bands played on WBT radio back in the 30’s and 40’s.  For most of his career, he performed with banjoist Dewitt “Snuffy” Jenkins, often billing themselves as the Hired Hands.

Historian Dr. Tom Hanchett will look back at Pappy and other performers in the early history of country music in our area for the Eastern Lincoln Historical Society. 

He will talk about Charlotte’s heyday as a center for country radio and recording — a history that’s intertwined with our area’s rise as the main textile manufacturing region for the U.S.

Please join us for this informative event on Monday, January 13 at 6 p.m. at the Mundy House Annex, 5363 Business Highway 16 N, Denver, NC 28037.
