About the third comment down:

===============================

@cyrus621 Correct on Dick Staber on mandolin, but the banjo player is John Farmer. This clip is from the movie "Bluegrass - Country Soul", filmed on Labor Day weekend in 1971, at the Camp Springs (NC) Bluegrass Festival


=====================================



Since I have NO IDEA who it is, I'll let you and Mr. Riman slug it out, if you think he's wrong.

I still call it Mt. McKinley. I am content living in a state of Denali denial.

What's next, dynamiting the face of Mt Rushmore? Mt McKinley will always be Mt. McKinley. I'm ignoring these recent assaults on our national heritage.

"We agree with Frisco Fred!



Anybody who changes the name of a mountain, disregarding the heritage of the people that have a long history of living near it, and have already GIVEN it a name, is assaulting a national heritage, and should never have been allowed to do so!"
