Biography

Born Feb 7, 1919, in NEW YORK into a huge family members (11 siblings), Spencer Moore dropped early beneath the spell of hill folk music after hearing information by Charlie Poole, Jimmie Rodgers, among others. Plus, he was lucky to have being a neighbor the fantastic blind fiddler and vocalist G.B. Grayson. In his mid-teens Moore mail-ordered a electric guitar from Sears & Roebuck and by the past due ’30s he was functioning within a duo along with his sibling Joe Moore (because the Moore Brothers — the set actually performed a tent present on a single bill using the renowned Carter Family using one occasion). Carrying out a stint within the armed forces during World Battle II, Moore resolved into the lifestyle of a cigarette farmer, although he hardly ever ended learning and playing tracks, gigging out locally at home celebrations and dances. Alan Lomax field documented him in 1959 within his Southern Trip project, of which period Moore was also showing up regularly within the Plantation Fun Period radio show from Bristol. Moore’s tale as a general public musician could have finished there if Josh Rosenthal of Tompkins Square Information hadn’t went to an exhibition of Lomax’s photos almost 50 years later on and taken see of an image of Moore through the 1959 session keeping his acoustic guitar and singing before a spiked cigarette field. Rosenthal monitored Moore down at Moore’s house in Chilhowie,VA, and documented the right now 87-year-old musician there on June 20, 2006. More than 70 years after he 1st found a acoustic guitar, Moore’s debut recording, simply known as Spencer Moore, was released by Tompkins Square in 2007. Moore no more farms tobacco but nonetheless plays frequently at regional dances and occasions near his house in Chilhowie, where he’s rumored to learn 500 to 600 (some state hundreds) of folk tracks by heart.
