Charles Mumford Bean (1913–92) was born in Fulton, the largest town of Itawamba County in northeastern Mississippi. He learned banjo and fiddle from his father George, and in about 1924 formed a string band with his distant cousins Clarence Relder Priddy (1917–97) on mandolin and Morine Little (1910–2000) on guitar. Bean won the tri-county (Itawamba–Monroe–Lee) fiddlers’ contest in 1925. The trio played over WELO, Tupelo on Saturday-night jamborees, and at dances, political rallies, and other functions. In February 1928 they made their only recordings, for Okeh at a location session in Memphis.
