The great bluegrass Dobro player Mike Auldridge (cofounder of the Seldom Scene and Chesapeake) died this morning after a long illness. A great musician and one of the good guys.

So sorry to hear this but I'm glad his suffering is over. He really was one of the good guys and not the least of his accomplishments was banging out "Hail to the Redskins" at RFK with the Scene after a Redskin's touchdown. Rest in peace and thanks for all the great music and good times, Mike.

I was honored to have Mike play Dobro and pedal-steel on several of my recordings. He was a thorough professional with exquisite taste for a musical phrase, and truly decent man into the bargain.

Yeah, another big loss to the bluegrass and country scene, one of the finest and most musical of today's steel virtuosi. RIP Mike.

What a shock.    Not only did he set an amazingly high standard in effortless-sounding and wonderful dobro, but he had a really fine smooth voice also--Check "Bottom of the Glass" and some others.   The old Seldom Scene (with Mike Auldridge, John Starling, John Duffy, and Tom Gray) were just magnificent.   We in the DC area were really lucky to have them based here.

"Bottom Dollar".    "Bottom of the Glass" was John Starling, I believe.   The old Scene had talent to burn.

The family posted the address on Facebook, so I thought it was okay to leave it in my post here. If a moderator disagrees, please remove it. I don't know how to remove or edit a post once I've made it.

Mike Auldridge made the notes come from his heart, trascending the instrument.

He was the greatest Dobro player ever, although Rob Ickes is a close second with his technical brilliance and jazz-based adventures.

Jerry Douglas has a large bag of tricks but plays less music than Mike Auldridge or Rob Ickes.

As recently as 7 months ago I had my last private lesson with Mike. I will never forget that easy way he had of making someone in total awe of him feel at ease and still impart so much of his knowledge to me. RIP Mike.
