Akira Otsuka, former member of Bluegrass 45, tells some wonderful stories about Bluegrass 45, the Seldom Scene, and John Duffey and his mandolins.

I thank him for sending me these videos...

Thanks for posting those. I enjoy hearing people talk about what they've experienced and remarkable people they've come to know. He made me spend a big chunk of time tracking down Duffey and Seldom Seen vids on YouTube.

I watched all four parts. I love the story behind Duck # 2.

You can hear John in my recording of The Seldom Scene at the 1979 Berkshire Mtns Bluegrass Festival...
