Hunter Berry is an East Tennessee native who grew up in a hotbed of traditional music, surrounded by some of the best bluegrass artists in the country. A prodigy performer, he was offered a job by Hall of Famer Doyle Lawson when Berry was just 14 years old. He has spent most of his professional years as the fiddler for Rhonda Vincent & the Rage and has one of the most identifiable fiddle styles on the current bluegrass scene. In this episode of Walls of Time, Daniel and Hunter talk about Hunter’s early influences, how he created his style influenced by the great Benny Martin, Paul Warren and today's great fiddlers, and about life on the road with Hall of Famers, Melvin Goins and Doyle Lawson, and the Queen of Bluegrass herself. Let’s join Daniel and Hunter on the campus of East Tennessee State University, where is also a professor within their Bluegrass Music Program.
