Old Time & Bluegrass / In Memoriam: Tut Taylor

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Tut Taylor, known as “The Flatpickin’ Dobro Man”, died April 9 in North Carolina at 91. He was perhaps best known for being a member of “The Aereoplane Band” that accompanied John Hartford on his iconic and ground-breaking “Aereo-Plain” album in 1971 and for being a Grammy winner for co-producing with Jerry Douglas “The Great Dobro Sessions” in 1994.

Surrounding the short tribute to Tut Taylor (including two selections from his first professional recording as a Nashville studio band member backing Porter Wagoner in 1964), is an assortment of old-time and bluegrass work, including a dip into the folk archive for New Lost City Rambler tunes from 1958-59 and selections from a marvelous new old-time recording from Erryn Marshall and Carl Jones.
