Re: Congratulations, Billy Strings, IBMA Song Of The Year & Entertainer Of The Year!
I remember the late Norm Gauch well. He was prickly, cantankerous, occasionally rude, and nearly always contentious. He also knew his stuff better than almost any of the rest of who post here - at least if it applied to the Guard era.
Gauch was - even with the aforementioned unpleasant qualities - a valuable member at Xroads. He would start several threads on a near-daily basis, always follow up on them, and manage to get a good many discussions going as a result of that rudeness.
If I could remember how best to use the Wayback Machine, I think we could dig up some of his remarks on Xroads. Google yields just this. Someone in Japan did preserve this page from a long-gone website - Clack's Cellar, maybe - and after the John Stewart memorial by his friend Tom DeLisle (another name that should stir memories around here), h
there'sa photo of GBR that is attributed immediately below it to Norm Gauch. http://www.kingston.sakura.ne.jp/john/The%20Kingston%20Trio%20News.htm
I seem to recall Norm Gauch [user name "Norm"] being a frequent poster on Crossroads.
His favorite KT album was Goin' Places which he often referred to as their "tour de force."
So, no one here remembers Norm Gauch, May He Rest In Peace.
Sierra has always been a favorite of mine! Does anyone remember our member, Norm Gauch? He met Sierra way back when she was just starting to get widespread recognition.
I saw Bela Fleck's My Bluegrass Heart in concert several months ago. Sierra Hull played mandolin in the group. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
