From his work in the early 1970s on a self-titled recorded project, to his work with J.D. Crowe as a member of the New South and release of the now Bluegrass Music classic project, Rounder 0044, Tony Rice defined a new generation of bluegrass greats. His recordings with Ricky Scaggs revisits the brother duets styling of the pre-bluegrass format. He cemented his role as a bluegrass legacy with his work as a member of the Bluegrass Album Band.

Influenced by family members, and guitar greats such as "Doc" Watson, and Clarence White, Rice used those styles to produce a sound of his own that has now become standards for guitar players the world over. Rice's work has influenced countless guitarists, not only in bluegrass music, but jazz, and Americana types of guitar techniques and formats.

Co-hosts Barry Graham and Harold Smith would like to invite you to this special edition of Pickin' on WHRV-FM. Sunday, August 3 at 7PM
