I didn't know Bob well, but I sure enjoyed his playing. The Summit Ridge
band played for a broadcast from KUVO's performance studio a few years ago,
and I had the pleasure of interviewing him on the air. I remarked about his
appealingly growl-y tone, and he indicated that he had listened to and
apparently apprenticed with Wild Bill Davison. A really solid player and a
nice guy; Denver trad fans will miss him a lot.
Does anyone know if mandolinist-fiddler Joe Craven, frequent sideman for
David Grisman who had a nice CD last year of his own last year (Django
Latino, it was called), is related to Bob?
