The Spinney Brothers reunited with an original member of their band from over 25 years ago when Steve Jackson performed "Fox On The Run" with them at a recent concert in Florida. Steve's parents took Rick to his first bluegrass festival back in 1987, and Steve and Rick also performed this same song together at their high school graduation. Rick tells us, "Steve suffered a stroke in 1990 and although it changed the course of his life, it didn't change his great, positive attitude and outgoing personality." The reunion was captured on video and shared on the band's Facebook page. You can view it by following this link
