I knew Doug Dalton as an electric guitar player who camped at Hillbrook Recreation, Ottawa Ohio. For years he made the Bluegrass Reunions that were held the first weekend of May and the first weekend of October. He and several friends from the Dayton area, plus a man that played upright bass from Illinois played a great variety of swing, jazz , western swing and fiddle tunes all weekend. On several occasions I was honored to set in with them. Although they played over my head, with Doug's help of calling the changes I feel I played some of my BEST music!
    The second thing that I found interesting in one of Don Stiernberg's post is his reference to Wild Bill Davison. Wild Bill grew up in the basement of the Library in Defiance Ohio. Defiance is my County Seat. Thanks for the memories.

    Hopefully Lee will answer you but this was posted over 9 years ago.

    If you go to the youtube link, there is a comment below by Joe Dalton, Doug's nephew. Perhaps you can contact him through youtube.
