Bill Monroe

Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, died twenty-one years ago today. Here are some memories of him on Terry Heaton's YouTube channel: an interview in 1980, when he was 69, and another in 1981, after he had recovered from cancer and surgery. His band at the time consisted of Wayne Lewis (guitar), Kenny Baker (fiddle), Butch Robins (banjo), and Randy Davis (bass).
