Summary
A pivotal member of the hugely successful bluegrass band Flatt and Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys, Dobro pioneer Josh Graves was a living link between bluegrass music and the blues. In lively anecdotes, Graves describes the climate in which bluegrass music emerged during the 1940s. Graves' accounts of daily life on the road through the 1950s and 1960s bring to life the world of an American troubadour and the mountain culture that he never left behind
