Travers Chandler, mandolinist with Avery County, has posted a nice remembrance on his MySpace Blog of Charlie Moore, who passed away on December 24, 1979.
“Charlie’s story is a story of triumph and tragedy. He was a gifted musician. A great guitar player, he could also play bass, mandolin, and banjo proficiently. He was great at arranging material. A terrific songwriter. An extremely entertaining MC with a sharp humor, and his singing was truly soulful. His phrasing was simply great.”
Read the full tribute on Travers’ blog.
Chandler’s band took their name from a Charlie Moore album released in 1977. Other members include Robert Overstreet on banjo, Adam Poindexter on bass, Hank Bowman on guitar and Heather Twigg on fiddle.
