TAGHS Hears About Fiddlin' Jim Pate at November Meeting

November 17, 2017 - An ad appeared in the January 17, 1930 edition of The Timpson Times announcing that Bussey's Drug Store had received the new Fiddlin' Jim Pate record. The ad went on to say that “Jim Pate is an old-time fiddler, lives in the Arcadia Community, just south of Timpson.”  Though few in Shelby County remember Mr. Pate's recording career, his records are prized by collectors of early country music and digital recordings are available on the internet.
