Fond Memories Of Johnnie & June

From Steppy on 3/14/2015 10:49:38 AM

I took banjo lessons from Johnnie when he and June lived in an old farmhouse in Ashburn, VA back in the late 70s.  I played bass fiddle on several gigs with Johnnie, June and Vern Bryant on fiddle.  There was a youtube video recording of a gig we did at the Lucketts, VA schoolhouse around 1980, but it's no longer there.  I really admired that beautiful banjo Johnnie had made and how he used those "cheaters".  He was a real character and a mighty fine musician.
