J.D Crowe & New South

J. D. Crowe (born 1937) has toured with various versions of his bluegrass band, New South, for more than thirty years. An influential banjo player, he got his start playing with Jimmy Martin’s Sunny Mountain Boys while still in his teens. In 1975, he put together what is widely thought to be one of the most influential bluegrass bands of all time.  Depicted here, it consisted of Ricky Skaggs on mandolin and fiddle, Bobby Sloan on acoustic bass, J.D Crowe on banjo, Jerry Douglas on Dobro, and Tony Rice on guitar and vocals.
