Tut Taylor (Born 1923)

Georgia native Taylor, a self-taught master of the Dobro – which he plays in an unusual style, with a flat pick – is a highly regarded studio musician who is, perhaps, best known as a member of the famous Aereo-Plane Band formed by John Hartford in 1971. The other members of the band were Norman Blake and Vassar Clements. Their groundbreaking album of 1971, Aereo-Plane, was an inspired combination of traditional bluegrass musicianship (of a very high order, given the band’s personnel) and the hippie spirit of the times.
