Tweedy Brothers - Supertone 9166 (1928)

Here are two brothers from West Virginia that hit the road in their early teens with their father, a country doctor, behind the wheel. They debuted on radio at Cincinnati's WLW in 1922. A few years later, they recorded for the Gennett company in Richmond, Indiana and many of their recordings made it to Sears labels...such as this one.

Charles Tweedy p / Harry Tweedy fiddle.

Ida Red recorded in Richmond, IN on April 21, 1928 and Buckwheat Batter on July 15, 1928.

  1. thank you for sharing this. Philip Moore (PM) Tweedy is my great great grandpa. His daughter Effie is my great grandma and is the older sister of the 3 Tweedy brothers. She taught Harry and Charlie how to play the fiddle. My grandma told me stories of the Tweedys and how her mom used to play all the time for the family.
