Biography

Doctor Coble Walsh (born July 23, 1901, Lewis Fork, Wilkes County, North Carolina, died May 28, 1967), better known as Doc/Dock Walsh, was an American banjoist, and bandleader of The Carolina Tar Heels. He formed that group with Clarence Ashley in 1925, followed by the addition of Gwen Foster. Walsh is known as the “Banjo King of the Carolinas”.

He played in a clawhammer style, but was one of the first to record the three finger style. He also invented a method of playing with pennies under the bridge and the strings played with a knife, similar to bottle neck guitar style
