Chuck Harding's musical background was a bit different than most hillbilly musicians of the day. He was a trained musician and taught fretted instruments at the Chicago School of Music for three years.
The Colorado Cowhands were a group of artists that were quite spread out in their roots.
R.T. Mercer, Spanish guitar
Adrian Childress, fiddle
Pee Wee Truckett (Truehitt?), bass fiddle
R.T. Mercer, was from Dyer/Tennesse and sang the 'more serious folk ballads' and Spanish guitar. Pee Wee Truehitt (or was it Truckett as mentioned in the caption with the picture?) was out of Waco/Texas. As they often said, he slapped the bass fiddle and offered the comedy parts of the act. Adrian Childress was from Knobel/Arkansas and played the fiddle and did vocals. Then there was Jerry La Masters who was a celebrated fiddle virtuoso and was said to have a remarkable breakdown style. The manager of the group was "Scotty" who was also Mrs. Chuck Harding.
Around 1950, the group were appearing over radio station KBOA in Kennett/Missouri where they had a two and half hour show each day. They also made personal appearances almost nightly in a 300 mile radius around Kennett.
Around that same time, Dome Records signed up Chuck Harding to a recording contract. Chuck wrote a lot of his own songs and his recordings included tunes such as "Jump Jackrabbit Jump", "Poor Little Girl", "Bald Headed Boogie", "Cotton Pickin' Blues", "Talking the Blues" and more.
Chuck also had his tunes recorded by other artists. These tunes, (but they didn't mention who recorded them) included "I'm Going To Write To Heaven", "A Picture, A Ring, And A Curl", "Teardrops Every Time It Rains", "I'm Living In A Lonely World", "Wasted Love" and more.
In addition, Jerry La Masters also cut a record with Dome Records to spotlight his fiddle mastery - "Back Up And Push" along with "Ozark Breakdown" and "Way Down Yonder".
I'm happy to see that you located photos of Chuck Harding's band from my Flickr account. My great-grandfather (Henry Shropshire) is the man in between Oneda and Chuck Harding in the third photo (also cropped out of the second). Henry played with "Chuck Harding and the Colorado Cowhands" for a time in the early 1950s. Feel free to use these photos as you wish, but I would appreciate my name being included only so that anyone else with old photos like them can contact me. I'm not familiar with this website, so I am curious as to what these edited photos are being used for? Glad that other people are interested in music of the past.
