Thread Name: tales of Pat Dunford
Subject: RE: tales of Pat Dunford
Glad to have stumbled across this site.
Pat was part of a group of musically inclined friends of mine.
I knew him in the early sixties, when I was in my early twenties and Pat might have been sixteen. I was not a close friend to Pat. My close friend in that group was Larry Gray: singer, guitarist, postal employee in Indianapolis.
Pat---and he admitted it himself--- was an alcoholic even at that young age. Yes, his banjo skills were of the highest caliber. Now, in my seventies, I'm still pitifully inferior at banjo than Pat was then
(although I'm better at blues guitar).
Our circles drifted apart. I've since lost touch with my friend Larry, as well.
