Thank you "con58976" for uploading this one to the Songbook.
This is my rendition of a gospel tune originally performed by Doyle Lawson who is an American traditional bluegrass and gospel musician. He is best known as an accomplished mandolin player, vocalist, producer, and leader of the 6-man group Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Lawson was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2012.
Lawson became interested in playing the mandolin around the age of eleven so his father borrowed a mandolin from a family friend and fellow musician. Doyle taught himself how to play the mandolin by listening to the radio and records, and watching an occasional TV show. Later He learned to play the guitar and banjo as well.
In 1966, he started playing with J.D. Crowe and the Kentucky Mountain Boys in Lexington, Kentucky. He took a break for six months, and then played again with Crowe until August 1971. In September, 1971, Lawson started playing with The Country Gentlemen and remained part of the band for almost eight years. In March 1979 Lawson left the Country Gentlemen with the intention of forming a band and creating his own sound.Within a month Lawson had formed Doyle Lawson and Foxfire. The band name was soon changed to Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.
In 1989 the band won song of the year at the International Bluegrass Music Awards for "Little Mountain Church House". Through the years, Quicksilver toured regularly, performing at festivals concerts and other musical events. In 1998, Lawson and Quicksilver became the first bluegrass band to perform at the National Quartet Convention. In 2015, "In Session" was nominated for Best Bluegrass Album at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. Lawson hosts the annual Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver Festival in Denton, North Carolina. This is a photo of them..
