Early Upchurch

Early Upchurch

Christian gospel artist Early Upchurch was from Mt. Airy, and lived most his life around Mt. Airy, Piper's Gap, and Galax

Five of his songs can be heard at the (online) Digital Library of Appalachia. He's playing the autoharp and singing Christian gospel songs with Dewey Hill, who is playing bass. This was possibly broadcast on Dewey Hill's radio program on WPAQ (Mt. Airy) or WBOB (Galax).

His LP "Hymns of the Hills" (plus one of his singles) can also be downloaded at the Jeremy's Saggy RecordCabinet blog.
