Josh Graves - Bluegrass Bluesman A Memoir Awarded

Bluegrass Bluesman - A Memoir by Josh GravesThe life and music of a bluegrass pioneer, in his own words... A pivotal member of the hugely successful bluegrass band Flatt and Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys, Dobro pioneer Josh Graves (1927–2006) was a living link between bluegrass music and the blues, maintaining ties with black artists and comporting himself as a classic bluesman with a gold tooth and snappy headgear. In Bluegrass Bluesman, this influential performer shares the story of his lifelong career in music. The 176 page Bluegrass Bluesman: A Memoir by Josh Graves was released, last September from the University of Illinois Press.
