I took this photo at Amphitrite Point, West Coast Vancouver Island. Ricky Skaggs is an American country and bluegrass singer, musician, producer, and composer. He primarily plays mandolin; however, he also plays fiddle, guitar, mandocaster and banjo. Skaggs started playing music at age 5 after he was given a mandolin by his father. At age 6, he played mandolin and sang on stage with Bill Monroe. At age 7, he appeared on television's Martha White country music variety show, playing with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. He also wanted to audition for the Grand Ole Opry at that time, but was told he was too young. In his mid-teens, Skaggs met a fellow teen guitarist, Keith Whitley, and the two started playing together. By 1970, they had earned a spot opening for Ralph Stanley. Skaggs later joined J. D. Crowe's band. For a few years, Skaggs was a member of Emmylou Harris's Band. Here is a photo of Ricky Skaggs in his younger days. I added 3 acoustic tracks (Banjo, Bass and Guitar) and a voice track to this one.. Thanks for stopping by... Comments are most welcome.... Have a good evening my Singsnap friends.. Hugzzz Gary
