We've kept up with the McLains ever since their festival at Big Hill ceased to be. We worked every one of their family band family festivals, and we have, thanks to the McLains, a good many of those special moments as a result. We still work with Ruth at the Museum of Appalachia every October. Raymond was a creative, devoted, incredibly talented musician, who helped spread our music all over the world. We'll all miss him.
