Description
Arthur Smith (April 1, 1921 – April 3, 2014) was an American musician and songwriter.
In 1955, Smith composed a banjo instrumental he called "Feudin’ Banjos" and recorded the song with five-string banjo player Don Reno. Later the composition appeared in the popular 1972 film Deliverance as "Dueling Banjos" played by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandel. Not given credit, Smith had to proceed with legal action that eventually gave him songwriting credit and back royalties. It was a landmark copyright infringement suit.
