Mr. Charles Summer was from a small cotton mill town in Union County. His father was a master fiddler and, consequently, Charles did not even recall the first time he heard the fiddle being played. It was always there. Summer recalled that one of the first tunes he learned was “In the Sweet Bye and Bye” and stated, “It took me almost three years to learn that one, and after that, I could play just about anything.”
