Although Ron is "known" for being a Crowe clone and a Paul Warren clone, he IS capable of any kind of music needed. And he is VERY enthusiastic. A great guy to talk music and banjos with.

There is a You Tube video of Dailey and Vincent singing Arkansas with Ricky Skaggs doing backup vocals. You can tell that Ron has spent some time listening to Sonny Osborne by the way he plays it. Not just the breaks but the backup as well.

Terry's comment reminds me of Roy Acuff's admonishment to teenaged Sam Bush (recent winner of the Grand Masters Fiddle Contest) about playing both fiddle and mandolin. Something to the effect "Stick to one instrument Sam -- don't dilute your talent."

Tell that to Justin Moses: equally wonderful on Dobro, banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle.

In different years, Ron Stewart has been voted IBMA banjo player of the year and IBMA fiddle player of the year. He's the only person to have accomplished that.

You can add Josh Turner to the multi-talented list.
