Gene Daniell passes

Today was a sad day for the bluegrass world, as we lost one of the greatest sound engineers this music has ever known, Gene Daniell.

Gene suffered a sudden stroke and died after being removed from life support early this afternoon. Arrangement details are expected to be announced shortly.

Daniell was a member of the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, and engineered the Graves Mountain Memories live CD released in 2010.

We will share some remembrances of Gene from his many friends next week.

Please join us here at Bluegrass Today as we pray for Gene’s wife Johnnie and the entire Daniell family. Rest in Peace, Gene.
