Victor Evdokimoff shares Memories and Recordings

Date: 
Tuesday, May 12, 2015 - 7:00pm

New England music fans are well aware that the Boston folk music scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s was also a hot bed of Bluegrass and Classic Country pioneers. Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs were among some of the well-known Bluegrass acts that played Club 47. The Lilly Brothers from West Virginia played almost every night for 16 years at Boston’s Hillbilly Ranch. Many people used to go to the Ranch and sit in with the Lillys such as Joe Val, Herb Applin, Herb Hooven , Jim Field, Peter Rowan, Bill Keith and a college kid named Victor Evdokimoff.
