Monk Daniel was the greatest fiddler I ever heard or with whom I ever played. At eight years of age, he was the lead fiddler in the Daniel Family Band on Sand Mountain, Alabama.  That’s me holding the banjo as a young man with Monk and friends.  I wrote this song called, ‘Ol Monk Daniel.  Blessings, Jim  (JimConnorBanjo.com)

    Monk ( Barney A ) Daniel wowed ‘em when he played on my RCA Album in Nashville; his fiddle literally “ talked” to those skeptic bigtime producers of my L P !!! Amazement set upon them when he started bowing that homemade ‘Johnson’ Sand Mt. fiddle, as his fingers danced over that fretboard!
