Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame

On June 10, I had the great honor of being inducted into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame in Wilkesboro, NC (for Traditional Dance) along with my longtime friend, old-time musician and singer Laura Boosinger. Other 2017 inductees included the Skillet Lickers, songwriter Don Gibson, and Mac Wiseman. Paul Brown was on hand to make the presentation and play the fiddle. I feel truly honored to receive this award, to be recognized for my work with traditional dance, and to now be in the company of some of the seminal figures of Appalachian music.
