I am deeply saddened to confirm that singer-songwriter-banjo player
John Hartford has died.
Monika & I met John Hartford at the 1992 Tennessee Banjo Institute. We just missed being in this
As you can see, everyone that was anyone in the banjo community was there.
Even so John Hartford (wearing his usual derby hat in the front row, middle) was the finest of the fine.
For such a famous and talented musician he was warm, friendly, modest, sharing and gentle.
The music community and the human community have been greatly diminished.
