About The Artist

Around 1956 or so, Lee Webb and the West Virginia Pals were entertaining fans in Ohio. Every Friday and Saturday night, the group was delighting the patrons at the Starlite Cafe in Wellsville, Ohio with their tunes as well as round and square dancing.

In the band was Hume Webb, Lee's brother. The steel guitar player, Carlos Nutter, was a nephew to Lee and Hume.
