Dale Vanderpool

Thanks to Conor Daly for drawing attention to the sad news of the death yesterday of Dale Vanderpool in the USA after a three-year battle with cancer. He was a fine Scruggs-style banjo-player with long service as the backbone of different bands, predominantly traditional-style bluegrass, including Don Rigsby & Midnight Call (who will be at the coming Omagh festival).

More details are on Bluegrass Today (the source of this photo), where you can see and hear him playing 'Earl's breakdown' with Midnight Call in 2010.
