Default Ike Everly

Picture of an Everly Brothers guitar on another thread (it was designed that way to produce a "dry", somewhat muted tone) got me wondering if there was anything on line about their father, legendary guitar picker Ike Everly. The answer seems to be "not a whole lot", but here is a recording of him with Phil and Don at Newport, long ago.

It's not a video, it's a link to an article about Ike that includes an audio recording of the Newport show.

My Christmas present to the AGF!

I'll throw this into the mix, it actually is a video, from a Johnny Cash Christmas special. Sound is, uh, not great, but kind of fun to watch Ike Everly and Mother Maybelle playing the same guitar. At the same time, that is.

I don't know but the brothers went to my high school so that is my high school's claim to fame. Besides me of course! Waaaaaaay before me of course. From everything I have heard about them, they were hoodlums as teenagers. They were originally from Ky and moved to Knoxville TN and went to West High School and from what I remember it was because that is where their father found work at the time Knoxville was a major country music hub back then with lots of people getting their start here like locals Chet Atkins, Roy Acuff and of course Dolly Parton just to name a few. I think it was Chet Atkins that discovered the brothers.
