    Default The McReynolds Tradition

    This is pretty nice. A trio made up of Jesse's grandchildren -- good to see they have some McReynolds cross picking going on too. Kind of reminds me of Helen Carter playing Wildwood Flower using the Carter scratch.

    Jesse's son used to play bass for Jim & Jesse -- is he still in bluegrass?

    Love that Kentucky Dawg mandolin too!

    J & J have always been one of my favorite Bluegrass Duos. Great to see the tradition moving on. Pure, clean & straight forward sound. Thanks for posting this clip!

    Bernie, Jesse's son Keith McReynolds, died about ten years ago, after a long fight with MS. They still have a Keith McReynolds Memorial Festival every year, raising money for MS.

    Thanks, I should have checked it out on line because I had some kind of foreboding feeling about it when I typed it -- I must have known it and forgotten...sad to realize.
