One thought on “Bill Keith, 1939 – 2015

  1. I watched a kind of dumb but entertaining would-be American Idol-type show a few years ago called America's Next Great Band, and all four of the final four bands were from Nashville. It's kind of crazy how only a select segment of the population feels entitled to really learn how to play an instrument and make some music, and it's probably a shrinking portion all the time, even in Greater Appalachia, where it's persisted a little longer than elsewhere. (I went to a finger-picking and fiddle contest in West Virginia a few years back, and while there were some great players, I was a little disappointed that the fiddler who won was the one who quoted the most TV themes in his solo. We're all trapped.)
