Guitarist and harmonica player Henry Whitter was co-billed with G.B. Grayson on a series of popular hillbilly sides recorded for Victor during the late '20s. Born in 1892, he was one of the first folk/countryfigures to use the harmonica rack allowing musicians to simultaneously play guitar and harmonica. Among the songs that Grayson and Whitter made popular were "Tom Dooley," "The Banks of the Ohio," "Train 45," and "Handsome Molly." After Grayson was killed in 1930, Whitter rarely performed and he died in 1941. ~ John Bush~ Rovi
