Thompson was one of the last of a generation of African American string band musicians in North Carolina. As a young man he played for square dances in Orange and Alamance Counties. Thompson told WUNC in 2008 that those dances got wild at times, and made him question whether a good Christian should be playing this kind of music.<br> Tue, 21 Feb 2012 16:01:00 +0000 David Brower 3210 at http://wunc.org
