Bluegrass Legend John Hartford on eTown w/ David Grisman & Mike Seeger (Retrograss – 2001)

eTown Archive - Retrograss w/ John Hartford, David Grisman & Mike Seeger

Literally weeks before American musical legend, John Hartford, lost his battle with cancer he visited the eTown stage one last time with his friends, David Grisman and Mike Seeger. This evening of Americana features everything from a hillbilly version of Chuck Berry’s classic “Maybellene” to David Grisman originals with Nick Forster joining in on guitar. Hartford’s performance of his classic original “Gentle on my Mind” is even more poignant now that he’s gone.
