Rev Daniel Rudolph O'Dell
Birth: Feb. 14, 1927
Pulaski County, USA
Death: Mar. 7, 2002
Highland Park
Pulaski County
Virginia, USA

Bluegrass Gospel Singer, Songwriter and Musician. He appeared on local radio stations in Pulaski Virginia and surronding areas for 48 years. He played the guitar and harmonica early in his career, but an accident at a local furniture factory severed some of his fingers to the knuckle ending his guitar playing forever. He did, however, continue to excel at playing the harmonica. He wrote over 100 songs and made several records and tapes. One of his most famous songs "Tragedy of Pulaski" is on display in the Pulaski Courthouse, where a copy of the record and words to the song can be found. The song was a true incident occuring in late 1950's. (bio by: Brent Davidson)
