Rare and unique 35mm trailer found in a basement in LaFollette, TN. East Tennessee’s own Mack Jeffers and his Fiddlin’ Farmers sprang from Scott County, Tennessee, moving up north to play on the radio. Several in the band returned home to East Tennessee after the band split up. This unique 1939 nitrate reel was shown in local movie houses to advertise the band’s upcoming appearance at that venue. This film remained unseen for 70 years until transferred by TAMIS engineer Larry Odham, This is all that remains of the Fiddlin’ Farmers legacy.
