Well this morning Katy Daley will be talking to ex-Country Gentlemen alumnus Jimmy Gaudreau, who this month is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the date that he first sang as a member of that storied bluegrass band.
Since then Gaudreau spent several years, in two stints, playing mandolin and singing with the Gentlemen, and later with JD Crowe and the New South. He also worked with The Tony Rice Unit (for 9 years), with his own bands Country Store, Spectrum (with Bela Fleck), Chesapeake, and Auldridge, Bennett & Gaudreau, and partnering with Bill Clifton and currently Moondi Klein.
Their telephone conversation can be heard on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country online.
WAMU transmits on 88.5FM and 105.5FM from Reston, Virginia.
