Jim Bunkley, born and raised in Geneva, Georgia, "made friends with the guitar" at age eight. The self proclaimed best known musician in Talbot County, Bunkley would take the stage with a great big ole cowboy hat, cracked a whole lot jokes and then played his heart out. 

George Henry Bussey was a woodworker, born near Waverly Hall, Georgia, about 15 miles from Geneva, where Bunkley lived. Although coming from a musical family in which everyone seemed to play an instrument and sing, Bussey didn't start playing the guitar until he was 18. "I listened to a lot of Blind Boy Fuller's records, but I wouldn't try to play it like he played it. I just played it in my own way."
