    Again a very insightful interview. As it appears, all the interviewed people are excedingly graceful to provide insight in their musicianship and interesting side matters.

    Thanx for this interview! I've been working on a lot of Jim & Jesse lately on the mandolin so this was welcome!

    I worked out most of Okeechobee Wind this morning.

    I met Jesse in June and he's not only a wonderful mandolin player but a first class individual as well!

    Dude has got to be close to 90 now. Saw him playing in Nashville in 2016. Didn't cross-pick as much but there weren't any flies on his playing. What a show. Him, Ronnie and David Grisman on mandolins. Del and Grandson Evan on guitars. Robbie on Banjo and Tracey Grisman playing bass. Vince Gil came out and sang a tribute to the late Ralph Stanley. I'll recall that show as long as my memory permits.

    How wonderful to have the,”First generation” musicians share some real insight into the “bluegrass life” as he has built so much for so many, myself included! I remember seeing Jim and Jesse at Sturgis, Michigan and driving home in one of the most miserable snowstorms I’ve ever driven through, ended up in the ditch and spent two days,getting the big old Cherokee out twenty miles from home.
    A dear friend and I used to take cookies to the band every time we’d seee them!
