J.D. Crowe remembered in Jeromie Stephens’ photos

J.D. Crowe backstage at the Tucson Bluegrass Festival, Tucson, AZ, in 2004 – photo by Jerome Stephens

Our good friend, Jerome Stephens, happened to be going through film of his photography yesterday and came across some images of J.D. Crowe he had forgotten about. So he scanned them in to his computer, and has shared them with us as we mourn the loss of a true bluegrass hero.
