RIP Gordon Wilfong

Gordon Wilfong began picking with us in 1974 and kept busy with us into 1978. We remained friends and continued to pick over the years. He passed away from cancer on Monday, August 24, 2009.

Gordon was like a brother to Roberta and I. He was a source of inspiration. He had an amazing knowledge of bluegrass and huge repertoire. Kenny Baker called several times hoping to get Gordon to work with Bill Monroe. He stuck with us. We were close and we’ll miss him.
