fishing

The Primitive Quartet began in 1973, when two sets of brothers, Reagan and Larry Riddle and Furman and Norman Wilson, carried a guitar and mandolin with them on a fishing trip to Fontana Lake. The boys all sang at home and in church, but that night in Graham County was when they first sang in four-part harmony. After the fishing trip, with the encouragement of their parents and pastor, they began to sing together at area churches.

We cannot express how thankful we are to everyone who participated in this year's Fall Fundraiser. The support and the love of WNCW fans, members, volunteers, staff, friends and family was overwhelming! We'll have more pics and lots of updates, as the funds are still coming in today. Again, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! By the way, this is an image of "The Tones." This was their first time volunteering at WNCW. They are Monotone, Coppertone, Sparkletone and Beltone. They helped make it happen, along with more than 120 other volunteers.
