Here’s another change on the bluegrass band front. Scott Walker has been tapped to play banjo with Wayne Taylor & Appaloosa, filling a spot recently vacated by Lee Marcus. Lee had done two stints with Taylor’s band, and is leaving to start a new career as a military man.
Scott is stepping in right away, but as he is unable to make the band’s trip to Norway, Holland and Scotland in July, Mike Scott will accompany Taylor and the guys overseas.
Wayne spoke very highly of Marcus, and said that he would be a credit to the military, where Taylor also dedicated himself for 24 years, more than 20 of them as a musician.
“We would like to thank Lee for his contributions to our effort, and we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavors.”
Keep track of Appaloosa on their official web site.
