On Christmas Eve the legendary J.D. Crowe passed away. He was 84 and left behind a body of work that stretched over 60 years—from his early work in the 1950s with Jimmy Martin to his own band in the 1960s “The Kentucky Mountain Boys” later renamed “The New South. Their 1975 self- titled release became known as Rounder 0044 for their label’s catalog number and today is still hailed as a landmark recording in bluegrass music. We’ll pay homage to him while he was working with Jimmy Martin and Paul Williams in the years 1958-1960 on his week’s Pickin' on WHRV, Sunday night at 7 on 89.5 FM.
