Charlie Poole & the North Carolina Ramblers - "Sweet Sixteen"

Charlie Poole (March 22, 1892 - May 21, 1931) Singer and banjo player Charlie
Poole is often considered to be one of the grandfathers of bluegrass and
modern country music. Poole recorded 60 songs during the 1920s for Columbia
Records with his wildly popular North Carolina Ramblers. Although Poole died of
an alcohol-induced heart failure at just 39 years old, he still had plenty of time to
influence bluegrass greats like Bill Monroe, and more indirectly, Hank Williams
and the folk singers of the 1960s.
