GOODBYE, MIKE AULDRIDGE

Photobucket
On December 29, 2012 the music world lost a true gentleman and a guiding light in bluegrass. A unique innovator, Mike Auldridge helped to re-define the role of the dobro in bluegrass and country music and brought a new sound and style to the musical world. I had listened to Mike and the influential band he helped to found, The Seldom Scene, for years, but it was only late in his life that I had the opportunity to work with him. He was a kind, sensitive and courtly man, and his sound and influence will be greatly missed. MIKE AULDRIDGE Truly a Legend
