Richard Burnett (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Leonard Rutherford (fiddle) were a well-known string band duo in south central Kentucky in the 1920s and 1930s, and they stayed active as performers into the 1950s. They are best known for the archaic-sounding ballad "Willie Moore," which was included on Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music. ~ Steve Leggett
