The Old Fashioned #66

The passing of Jesse McReynolds and Bobby Osborne within a few days of each other at ages 93 and 91 respectively was a bit uncanny. Both were legendary mandolinists who, with their brothers, picked their way into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame during the first golden age of the genre. I wrote a memorial piece to them here, and quickly turned to pulling music from their storied careers to play in our second block. Hosting solo I also worked in a set of acoustic guitar music, inspired by a new instrumental album by Blue Highway’s Tim Stafford. Also this episode, new music from Authentic Unlimited and Nora Brown.
