Kerry Blech (1947-2023) was an old-time fiddler and preeminent ethno-musicologist. He grew up in Ohio and moved to Seattle for the next 22 years. Over the years, Kerry became recognized as an expert on old-time music. Despite any due acclaim, Kerry was very generous with his time and knowledge. Sheila Blech Long was married to Kerry for several decades and they had 2 children. On Tuesday’s Stringband Theory at 8:30am, Sheila will join Dave Long live to discuss Kerry and play some music in a tribute. Hope you’ll tune in.
