Born in Grayson County, Virginia, Estil C. Ball was an American folk musician who played mountain county gospel and finger-style guitar. A musician who probably did not get enough recognition in his life time, Estil used to preform with his wife Orna and their Friendly Gospel Singers in churches and on the radio. If you like what you hear check out Thompson Square Records who released Face a Frowning World, a collection of E.C. Ball songs recorded by other favorite musicians including Bonnie Prince Billy and Jolie Holland.
