Fiddling in Hank Thompson’s band


Hank Thompson is a Grand Ol’ Opry star and a big name in western swing music with many country music hits,  and career record sales of over 40 million albums sold. I had the honor and pleasure of being the fiddler in his back up band for a tour in Maine. Our band was “Country Tradition,” led by Paul Main. (Another fun gig that we did was opening for Ricky Skaggs in the Augusta Civic Center.)
