REEDY, JOHN WILLIAM (1918-1983)

From Harlan County, Kentucky, John Reedy and his wife Frances appeared on radio in Harlan, Kentucky, for many years and became well known for their bluegrass gospel recordings. Sometime in the early 1960s, they were apparently living in the Dayton area, as they cut three singles for Jalyn in Dayton, an EP for Ark in Cincinnati, and at least four self-produced singles on their own label, which gives an address of 5180 Wolf Creek Pike in Dayton. They also cut a single on Cincinnati’s Jewel label and two EPs on Starday, on which Dayton’s Dorsey Harvey is reputed to have been the mandolin player.
