Abstract
North Carolina fiddler and banjo player Jim Scancarelli’s extensive career as a string band musician began in the early 1960s. A founding member of the Kilocycle Kowboys, one of Charlotte’s longest-lived bluegrass bands, he played banjo with the Mole Hill Highlanders, and in the 1980s formed Sanitary Cafe with fiddler Tommy Malboeuf. Through the 1970s, his annual recordings at the Union Grove Fiddlers Convention captured superlative music and performer interviews. Scancarelli also had a successful career as a freelance magazine artist and collaborated on the syndicated comic strips “Mutt and Jeff” and “Gasoline Alley,” eventually taking over authorship of the latter in 1986. This biography traces his creative trajectory in music, art, radio and television, and the cartooning industry.
