Don and George met in 1970 when George taught himself to play the guitar in three weeks to join Don’s band and accompany Don on the fiddle. After years away from the north country, George is again playing with Don.
Both men have deep north country roots. Don has worked with TAUNY to preserve our music traditions. George has written original compositions about his hometown. The evening will provide historical insight into our music.
