In Memory of Joe Carr June 22, 1951 - December 14, 2014

The other day i wondered , how Joe is doing, whom i met in the nineties at the Bluegrass Camp in Levelland, Texas, which he organized along with banjo wizard Alan Munde and which i visited many times subsequently. Besides being a great musician, teacher and author it was his great personality, that made me coming back to the tiny West-Texan town over and over again. However when i checked with Wikipedia about his whereabouts, i learned that he already passed away last year. For me this were really sad news and i feel awful sorry for his wife and daughter as well as the legions of friends and fans he has especially in Texas. Listen to Joe and Alan in this video.
