More Tony Rice at Red, White and Bluegrass

Here’s another gallery of Tony Rice at Red, White and Bluegrass. He was accompanied by Terry Baucom and Mountain Heart.

Dennis also sent a shot of Marty Raybon, and one of Gary Leonhardt, co-producer of the festival, presenting a plaque to Herb Lambert of The Blue River Boys honoring him for his lifetime contributions to bluegrass music. Dennis tells us that Terry baucom played fiddle with them when he was only 17 years old.

“Bill Monroe called him the greatest mandolin he knew. When The Blue River Boys did a show opening for Emmylou Harris at Carnagie Hall, the New York Times review gave a few lines to Emmylou, with Ricky Skaggs in the band, and about 4 paragraphs to The Blue River Boys. They blew them away.”
