Ricky Skaggs Playing Bill Monroe's F5

Recommended Posts

Of course, Lloyd Loar didn't actually build the mandolin as the announcer stated, but it's a real treat to see Monroe's instrument in the hands of Ricky Skaggs.

 

When I pick up my '22 A-style Gibson, I think of Loar roaming the halls in Kalamazoo. What an incredibly rich history Gibson has.

 

I was heavily into bluegrass music in the '70s, and had the pleasure of seeing Bill Monroe play in a very small venue. Loved his work going back to the late '40s with Flatt & Scruggs (and whomever the accordian player was!).

 

Thanks so much for sharing!

Ricky has a Loar that my grandfather sold him back in the 1980's, here in Grand Rapids, MI. Grandpa is gone now but, I always wonder which one it is. Someday I might find pics or paperwork in my moms things.
