About John Dilleshaw
John Dilleshaw was from North Georgia, USA - an exceedingly fertile area for musicians, in the 1920's - a contemporary of the then famous Skillet Lickers & Georgia Yellow Hammers. At 6'7" & a lefty, he was no doubt an imposing figure at the time & also known as Seven Foot Dilly. He recruited some of the best fiddlers in the area such as Ahaz A. Gray, Joe Brown, Lowe Stokes and Harry Kiker. Pink Lindsey and Shorty Lindsey were the other members of the group. The combination of bowed bass, tenor banjo, and powerful guitar runs made this group one of the premier strings bands of the 1920's
