Charlie Stripling, a fiddler born in rural West Alabama in 1896, is esteemed by musicians and record collectors who specialize in southern old-time music. Stripling's recordings have become classics and are included on many anthologies of recordings made between World Wars I and II, a period known as the "golden era of string band music." His body of work has been released as "The Stripling Brothers: Complete Recorded Works—1928-1936" Document Records (1997).
