The unmistakable music of banjo master, J.D. Crowe has shaped a generation of bluegrass musicians. His seminal band, the New South was known for taking mainstream songs and making them bluegrass favorites, as well as updating many classics of the genre. Throughout his career, his line-ups have carried a who’s who of bluegrass heavyweights. Here in part one of a two-part interview, Daniel Mullins sits down with this Bluegrass Hall of Famer to talk frankly about his journey and where he thinks bluegrass music is headed, or at least where he would like to see it go. His opinion is a strong one as he talks about ingenuity, work ethic, creativity, and grit. You’ll hear some road tales too about storied bandmates like Jimmy Martin and Tony Rice. Let’s pull up a chair with Daniel and J.D. Crowe at J.D’s kitchen table near Lexington, KY.
