CD-295 Tom Ewing "Adventures of a Blue Grass Boy"
Buy and Download >
Tom Ewing played and recorded with Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys in the 1970s prior to joining Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in 1986. From then until Monroe's passing in 1996, Tom recorded several albums with him, including the Grammy award-winning Southern Flavor. He has also written extensively for Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and, in 2000, compiled and edited The Bill Monroe Reader for the University of Illinois Press. He is currently writing a Bill Monroe biography.
Between 1986 and 1996, while I was one of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, I had many great adventures. But few equaled the ones involved with the making of these recordings. Unfortunately, most were released on cassette tapes at a time when the CD was making cassettes obsolete, and I was unable to afford to convert them to the new technology. Now, thanks to Tom Mindte of Patuxent Music, I can share these adventures with you.
