Just to pass the sad news. Mac certainly was influential part of OT music. I am sure others have more to tell than I.
Very sad news indeed. I also heard we lost Clyde Davenport over the weekend. Two legends.
I think Mac's precise and fluid, even delicate banjo style might sometimes have been obscured in the racket of our band, but its on display in some of his later work on YouTube. I was amazed when he released a CD of Ed Haley tunes - for banjo!
Our friend Larry Edelman put together this nice little tribute video: m.youtube.com/watch?v=dE1fiMTMYQM
And here's one of his big "hits" from the early days: youtu.be/rwyNaU9Z5iE
I don't think that kind of stuff is very popular these days, but it once was.
Doug, thank you.
Just saw this. Saddening. I think I've watched Dance All Night about six or more times now. Thank you, Doug
He will be missed.
