per Peggy Smith Hake:

Bill Driver had the unique, God-given talent of a musician. He was very well-learned on the old country fiddle and during his lifetime he won many fiddling contests across the countryside. Often his first-place prize was $25.00 in cash. He was much in demand at Saturday night dances where he played to the delight of his many admirers. Many times he was accompanied by the Howser sisters (Sadie and Slvia) as they picked their flat-top guitars for the lively dances. Bill and the Howsers (including Sadie and Sylvia's blind brother) often played at the local picnics held each summer at Hardy Lollis Park in Iberia.
