Ken Davidson is a record company owner and producer and a native of West Virginia, as you might deduce from the names of two of his record labels: Kanawha and Poca River. He began documenting old-time music in West Virginia in the early 1960s with records on Kanawha by Clark Kessinger, Billy Cox, Franklin George, and others. He also issued an LP by Ohio State Champion Fiddler Curly Herdman. In the early 1970s, he moved to Dayton and began issuing local bluegrass material by Ron Thomason, the Hagan Brothers, Dorsey Harvey, and Chris Montgomery. In the 2000s, he started issuing CDs on the Tri-Agle-Far label, reprising some of the Kanawha material as well as some new things. In 2016, he is working in cooperation with Bee Balm Records to reissue some of the old-time fiddle recordings from Kanawha and Tri-Agle-Far.
