If you've ever seen The Andy Griffith Show with the 'Darling Family', you've seen an early iteration of 'The Dillards'.

 

Doug was the banjoist.

 

He and his comrades is part of the reason I play the guit tar and love Bluegrass. You might say Doug and his band introduced me to the genre with which I have had a life long love affair.

 

 

He will be missed. [crying]

I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him a couple of years ago at a bluegrass festival. He was easily approachable and was very easy to talk to. Very nice, humble man. Felt like talking to a family friend! A great talent, too. He was happy to talk about the days on the Andy Griffith Show, and loved telling stories about music. A great loss.
