I'm a big fan of bluegrass and grassers change bands like the wind changes directions. I think they just like playing with alot of different folks. There is one fella I'd admire for his talents on multiple instruments and his voice. I also admire him for the banjo player he is considering the difficulty associated with picking a banjo and playing through those endless 3 finger rolls in some quick timed music. Why do I admire his ability over some of my other favorite pickers? He doesnt have any fingers on his left hand. He was born only with a thumb. He's played with groups like Silver Creek, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, the national acclaimed group of IIIrd Tyme Out, and now is currently playing with Mountain Heart. His faith in God is deep and he is blessed with alot of talent and resolve to overcome a disability. He is an inspiration to me everytime I watch him play. His name is Barry Abernathy.
