Re: Jesse McReynolds will now take our questions
I once heard a story that George Shuffler and yourself were stuck in a hotel in Asheville, NC (my hometown) during a snowstorm and shared some cross picking techniques with each other. Is there any truth to that story?
On a separate note, what business practices have you had to undertake to stay in the music business during a long career which has seen format changes (vinyl, tapes, CD's, MP3's) trends (rock and roll), and the loss of your beloved brother and musical partner?
I grew up hearing " Hard Hearted" amongst my dad's records and cherish those memories; I also really love hearing Jimmy Campbell's fiddling with your band on videos from the Jerusalem Ridge, Peaceful Valley Bluegrass festivals on YouTube.
Thank you for all your hardwork in diversifying bluegrass music!
