Busiest playing piano riker keyboards and yes actually Miami in the cement is piano I started playing piano when I was five years old. I'm doing. That the jazz trio were currently there are. And they've embryos and also. Yeah I think some things out through the same time don't know what is it that yeah. Well that's true how how did you get started on mandolin and I'm just curious well.

I heard one of these will music Anderson's instrument that you. And equities that's pupils. That existed but that's a good but. President wanted to find out more about that instrument and so. Senator Edward Mandel and and then obviously answers. And in this closet for years. And she gave it to me it was a bull back. And you know with them rose as possible. But so I started that I didn't want to play and it's bleachers music and that hurts a little bit of Irish music in the solutions. That way. Started buying all of these different CD's that I heard and so. And that configuration. Mandolin and fiddle guitar and and it was an need to know more about this music that is so it started so well that thing mandolin 2001. Let's pretty good definition of bluegrass scene when you get the banjo in the mandolin and guitar and little. In the base and you've got yourself a bluegrass better that's kind of it was Bill Monroe put together that original band. Roughly Carter Stanley came along about the same time and they they also put together in a similar instruments and I think they are the reasons that the music is as John Reich is they were raw like the first band to. Take Monroe's music out and add a little different twist to it and thousands of Ben's been doing that ever sense but. But that we lost Ralph Stanley this past week and we're gonna honor him here on the bluegrass special during the second hour rush or show I've got nothing but.
