โ€œI donโ€™t remember the first album that I bought, but I remember the first record that I heard that really struck a chord in me. It was Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys. It was their Foggy Mountain Banjo album.

I was probably about ten years old at the time, and I just loved that record. Thatโ€™s what made me want to learn to play the banjo.โ€
