Morgan Sexton (1911-1991)—logger, miner, and musician—lived all of his life in the coal country of southeastern Kentucky. As a boy, Sexton sang ballads and love songs learned from family members and local musicians. He also mastered a two-fingered method of picking the banjo that predated bluegrass. His playing style proved well suited for rendering instrumental dance tunes as well as accompanying his expressive singing.
