From his birth in Owensboro, Kentucky, in 1947, to his 2020 album featuring the music of Lee Hammons, Wayne Howard has lived an exceptionally creative life. Howard seems to be eternally present at fiddle festivals, on the margins of old-time music gatherings, and ensconced in the circles of creative forces working to preserve and disseminate this archaic southern mountain music. In 1969, he relocated to West Virginia and, after being introduced to the Hammons family by Dwight Diller, Howard befriended the family and recorded Lee, Sherman, Burl, and Maggie Hammons playing music and telling stories. From there, Howard carved out a place for himself as a professional computer programmer, a vintage book collector and seller, and woodworker before turning his attention to writing about the Hammons family, and producing CDs from his reel-to-reel tapes of their stories and music for the Field Recorders' Collective.

This biography follows the threads of music and folklore through Howard's life, celebrating his profound knowledge of the songs and songsters that does much to sustain the interest of those who seek out Appalachian tunes, songs, and stories.
