Scott Tichenor, proprietor of Mandolin Cafe, shot us a note about some photos published yesterday on his site.
Cafe member John Fields posted several pictures he took of Bill Monroe on tour in England during 1996, which he had waylaid and only recently rediscovered. They show Big Mon with Richard Greene on fiddle, Lamar Grier on banjo, Peter Rowan on guitar and James Monroe on bass.
The photos show some damage from time, but do offer an interesting glimpse at some never-before-seen images of our dear, departed Patriarch.
See them all at Mandolin Cafe.
