A Review -- I just completed a mighty fine read - Crowe on the Banjo: The Music LIfe of J.D. Crowe written by the late Marty Godbey. The first thought that comes to mind is "What an enjoyable book to read." This book is surperbly written and once you start, you just can't put it down. From beginning to end, author Marty Godbey takes you inside the inner circles of bluegrass from its early beginnings through today as she carefully takes you on a journey of the legendary artist, J.D. Crowe.
