JD Crowe

JD Crowe remembers seeing Earl Scruggs perform in Lexington with Lester Flatt.  The sound was so unique and different that all young JD could think about was getting a banjo!  He did and, well, the rest is history.  JD became a well-regarded and popular banjo player in the bluegrass style.  During his 60 year career, he recorded and performed among his heroes as well as a string of young performers who have called JD their musical mentor.
