Hearing Roscoe Holcomb for the first time was a huge infulence on me. I doubt that I'd be playing old-time music today if it wasn't for that experience. I brought one of his Folkways LPs home with me from the library when I was about 12 years old. When I put it on the turntable it completely changed how I thought about music. It was thrilling and beautiful and scarily intense all at the same time. I thought, "That's what I want to do when I grow up."

I'm sure I'll never achieve the genius that Roscoe had, but I keep trying!
