CeCe has not only done it, she's lived it! It started long before her book on the Black Banjo Songsters. Between her time spent with Tommy Thompson and the Red Clay Ramblers AND Tommy Jarrell (et al), she been somewhat writing from her life's experiences.
CeCe shares many of her thoughts and stories, here. Some fine photos, too. Oh, and a closeup of Tommy Thompson's Fairbanks #5.
Thanks for what you do, CeCe!
