Posey Rorer

String strap fiddler Posey Rorer was created on September 22, 1891, in Franklin County, Virginia. The sibling in legislation of banjo participant Charlie Poole, Rorer was an integral a part of Poole’s North Nation Ramblers until 1928, whenever a disagreement with Poole resulted in Lonnie William Austin overtaking the fiddle place in the music group. Rorer was an in-demand Virginia program player, backing performers like Kelly Harrell (whose music group was officially known as the Virginia String Music group) and Walter “Child” Smith on the various 78s, aswell as playing inside a music group that was nearly the same as Poole’s with Preston Youthful and Buster Carter (the trio occasionally actually billed themselves as the North Nation Ramblers, which without doubt discouraged Poole, whose personal wild behavior produced him an extremely at-risk reservation). Posey Rorer passed away in March, 1935.
