b. 13 June 1905, Burnsville, NEW YORK, USA, d. 13 July 1980, USA. Playing acoustic guitar and performing traditional music that ranged through the blues to early nation, Riddles became a pal and musical friend of the.P. Carter, patriarch from the Carter Family members. With Carter, he travelled through many claims, specifically in the Midwest, gathering tunes. To Riddles dropped the unenviable job of learning the tunes that they noticed in order that Carter, who mentioned what, could later on reproduce them for his family members music group. Riddles also experienced a stylistic impact on Maybelle Carter’s acoustic guitar playing.
