Harvey Fink was playing out of Watertown, Wisconsin back in the late 1950s
and recording the old style western tunes on the Mountain label. He was noted
for doing some of the old A.P. Carter tunes such as "Mid the Green Fields
of Virginia" and "The Fate of Dewey Lee" back then.
The article we found mentioned his songs were "...strictly in the
old-time mountain style". They said he was a "...connoisseur of all
Western tempos". His popularity was such that they mentioned he
had several fan clubs for him.
