Dorsey Harvey, a native of Irvine, Kentucky, was a contemporary of Red Allen and Frank Wakefield and a talented mandolin player. However, he chose not to leave Dayton to seek his fame and fortune as they did. In the late 1970s, Ken Davidson prevailed upon him to record an LP on Poca River Records to showcase his talent on the mandolin. Dorsey, along with Fred Bartenstein, Sherrill Jennings, and Glen “Cookie” Inman, played the Dayton area for a time as the Dorsey Harvey Band.
