Norman Blake

A small sneak peek of the mind-blowing interview with the living legend and Chattanooga native, NORMAN BLAKE (recorded with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, John Hartford, and the list goes on and on.) In this episode, Norman Blake talks about meeting Johnny Cash for the first time, and he and Joel McCormick, play “Yellow Barber” and “High Dad in the Morning” on some absolutely breathtaking guitars from the Museum’s collection: 1942 Martin Guitar Herringbone D-28, 1924 Gibson F-5 Mandolin and L-5 Guitar (both signed by Lloyd Loar on March 31, 1924), 1947 Martin D-28, and a 1936 Martin D-18.
