Bill Emerson is being inducted into the IBMA Hall of Fame this month, and I can't think of anyone more deserving of this honor. Katy Daley just did a podcast interview with him, and it is well worth listening to.

One of the all-time great banjo players, interviewed by one of the all-time great radio personalities. First-rate podcast.
I enjoyed that. Kind of bittersweet though, that he’s retired now.
After Earl Scruggs, Bill Emerson's playing with Cliff Waldren as well as the Country Gentlemen was a big influence on my playing.
Thanks for posting.
