edits made based on another article in Wikipedia[edit]

I've added what I considered useful or valuable information on this subject from the subsection "Appalachia" in the Old-time music article in Wikipedia. Information that I found important, relevant to Appalachian Music from that page , along with their citations, have been transferred with minimum changes possible. I'd like to ask anyone to review, and any necessary changes or correction would be appreciated.218.150.66.247 (talk) 05:00, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Please don't add information that isn't sourced, regardless of whether or not it comes from another Wikipedia article. The Neil Gow tidbit is interesting, if you can find a source for it (I didn't see mention of Gow in any of the sources I used for this article). The Proffitts are fine musicians, but I don't think they were so influential as to require the focus of an entire paragraph in the history section. Sharpe and Karpeles collected ballads in Appalachia in 1916, 1917, and 1918, not just 1916 (and I think Karpeles returned to the region several years later). Bms4880 (talk) 13:56, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
