Bobby Slone was born June 13, 1936, in Pike County, Kentucky, and passed away on Monday, August 12, due to rectal cancer. Slone and Crowe began playing together in the summer of 1964; Slone was a fiddle player initially.
In 1971 Crowe changed the name of his band to the New South and after some changes in personnel, he had a core group of Tony Rice (guitar), Bobby Slone (bass) and Ricky Skaggs (mandolin, fiddle and viola), with Crowe playing the banjo. Slone made two tours of Japan with the New South, one in the autumn of 1975 and then again in the spring of 1979, during both of which Slone played fiddle as well as bass (although not at the same time).
Then for several years he worked in Chicago, playing Country music and Western Swing, before he moved to California where he returned to bluegrass music as a member of the Golden State Boys.
In 1962 Slone joined the Kentucky Colonels with whom he stayed for a year and a half, playing bass.
From 1989 Slone quit long distance travel and spent the ensuing period playing fiddle as a staff musician at Renfro Valley Entertainment Center.


A question has arisen in the last couple of weeks about a growing IBMA mystery: what on earth happened to the Special Awards? OnBoard Research has sent us two of their new tuners to check out, and they are marvelous little devices.

The legendary bluegrass music listening venue in Alexandria, Virginia, The Birchmere, passed its 50th anniversary on April 4. It’s hard to keep a good man down in bluegrass music (although we all do like to be lonesome now and then), and radio broadcaster Larry Roberts is a prime example of that. They worked at Martin’s Place, the Red Slipper Lounge (at the Holiday Inn) and private parties in and around Lexington, Kentucky. At the age of 13 he joined the Kentucky Ramblers working on Pikeville’s Radio WLSI before he moved to Bristol, Virginia, where he played with Buster Pack and the Lonesome Pine Boys on WCYB’s Farm and Fun Time.

Kristy Cox’s Part of Me, on Pisgah Ridge Records, is one of those projects, stacking up so far as one of my favorite recordings of the year.
Surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains, fans enjoyed the best in bluegrass for three straight days. The only artists making this new music in the 1940s were country and mountain folks whose lives revolved around the land from whence they took their living.
Some folks are born into it, listening to mom and dad play Flatt & Scruggs before they’re even out of the hospital.
The emphasis on tradition, the lack of electric instruments, the sheer lonesomeness of it all – it’s not Katy Perry or Justin Beiber, that’s for sure. As well as contributing to that magazine, he has, in the past 30 plus years, had articles published by Country Music World, International Country Music News, Country Music People, Bluegrass Unlimited, MoonShiner (the Japanese bluegrass music journal) and Bluegrass Europe.He wrote the annotated series I'm On My Way Back To Old Kentucky, a daily memorial to Bill Monroe that culminated with an acknowledgement of what would have been his 100th birthday, on September 13, 2011. And, that is what it did on July 30th during the Susie’s Cause 2nd Annual Bluegrass-Folk Festival at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeyesville, Maryland.
