Feb. 10, 2019. Nashville, TN. Curtis McPeake & Andy May, with Aubrey Haynie on fiddle and Tim Dishman on bass, played songs from The Good Things (Outweigh the Bad) and answered questions in this Country Music Hall of Fame‘s Musician Spotlight performance. The show was videotaped by the museum’s video crew, live-streamed, and archived for posterity.
In the Special Awards Luncheon today at the International Bluegrass Music Association convention in Raleigh, NC, Andy accepted Curtis McPeake‘s Special Achievement Award on his behalf. (Curtis was unable to attend.) The photos below are from Frank Baker’s album in Bluegrass Today.
On … “Leather Britches,” you can hear that same timelessness in McPeake’s duet with Nashville stalwart fiddler Aubrey Haynie. They kick the tune with fiddle and banjo only, showcasing that classic pre-bluegrass format, Haynie fiddling fantastically far and wide while McPeake holds it all together with his three-finger roll, seventy years in the making.
