About Eddie

Ed Ogle of Roanoke plays harmonica and guitar and provides many of Mountain Fling's vocals. His award-winning harmonica playing features both slow, lyrical melodies and fast dance tunes on this instrument that figured heavily in the development of old-time music. Ed, a native of southern West Virginia, enjoys performing both traditional and more contemporary songs. He continues to develop his own style of playing from listening to musicians he admires and swapping techniques with them.  He enjoys getting beginners started in harmonica workshops. Eddie's steady rhythm guitar with occasional leads adds much to the foundation of the group’s sound. He is much in demand as a rhythm guitar player for local and regional dances and old-time concerts, and does solo performances as well. He is a leader of the Big Lick String Stranglers, another local old-time  band.
