I Miss Kenny – RIP Kenny Baker
In case you haven’t heard yet, Kenny Baker – THE fiddler from Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys – passed away today at the age of 85 in Nashville.
As one of the musician’s that shaped and reinforced my love for bluegrass, this is surely a loss for the community. Send your prayers to his family.
More great content will be available on The Bluegrass Blog in the coming days to celebrate his incredible musical career. Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting some of those nuggets here and our site’s Twitter page.
