Fred Bartenstein [in blue shirt] looks on.
At the book's debut at this year's IBMA World of Bluegrass event in Nashville, Fred Bartenstein joined members of Josh's family (including Josh's widow, Evelyn) on what would have been Josh Graves's 85th birthday: September 27, 2012. What a great way to celebrate the publishing of the memoir by the one and only Burkett Howard "Uncle Josh" Graves.
Be sure to join us on Sunday's radio show, as Fred will have some interesting stories to tell about how the memoir finally came to be published, and other tidbits about the life of Josh Graves. The plan is to get Fred on the phone around 5PM Eastern time. Thanks to the University of Illinois Press, we'll even have a copy of Bluegrass Bluesman to give away to a lucky listener. Will that be you?
