MissouriMud Obit: Erik Darling (1933-2008) (77* d) RE: Obit: Erik Darling (3 August 2008) 06 Aug 08

Sad news indeed. Eric was one of my first folk influences. I had the 1950's self titled album , with him leaning against the stop sign, and just totally absorbed his mountain tuning banjo renditions of Pretty Polly and Swananoah Tunnel, as well as his guitar work on Aboline and J.C Holmes - I still play the guitar pieces. And his later 12 string work was always fun. I learned to love folk music first from Pete Seeger and the early Weavers - but I learned technique from Eric.
