G.B. Grayson and Henry Whitter were one of the most influential musical duos in history of traditional music, popularizing songs like "Little Maggie," "Handsome Molly," "Train 45," and many others. Although their lives were both cut tragically short, their enduring legacy continues to resonate today. Their lives and music, which were strongly tied to Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee and Ashe and Watauga counties, provide a fascinating insight into life in the Appalachian Mountains at the turn of the 20th century
