Doug Dillard – The Banjo Album

Before embarking on his Fantastic Adventure with Gene Clark, The Dillards’ founder member issued this statement of intent?a sweet fusion of traditional folk tunes, Ralph Stanley-flavoured bluegrass and white-boy US blues.

All the ingredients are in place?Jim Dickson production, Bernie Leadon’s guitar, John Hartford’s fiddle and Gene (on harmonica) among the crew, all providing a taste of that new ’60s baroque which lends this style its longevity and charm.
