    John Hartford-Preserving the Legacy of the Father of Newgrass



    Very interesting read, indeed. What a musician he was. Thanks for posting this article. It was truly fascinating.

    I’ll have to come back and read this, I can’t read this on the road.


    Reading on the road will make you feel like yuck, won’t it?   Well thanks, Nancy…I’ll have to read it later too…John Hartford was one of the coolest!


    John Hartford’s “LORENA” is my favorite and I’m trying to duplicate it on my fiddle.   His banjo has caused me to dig out and clean up an old banjo that I’d retired decades ago.  This one of the few songs that he didn’t dance to while playing and I can understand how the CW troops (both sides) must have reacted to this song.   Very touching!
