About the show

Interview with fiddler Jim Shumate, conducted October 2002 by Burgin Mathews. Shumate temporarily replaced fiddler Howdy Forrester in the earliest incarnation of Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys; when Monroe needed a new banjo player, Shumate introduced him to Earl Scruggs, thus initiating one of the essential collaborations of American music. Shumate died at the age of 91, in October of 2013.
