Episode 124 - Doug Hutchens Interview

In this episode I talk with Blue Grass Boy Doug Hutchens. Doug was working and mowing the grass at Bean Blossom and was in the right place at the right time to become Bill Monroe's bass player in 1971.

Doug's story is fascinating and he has been involved as a musician and in documenting the history of the Blue Grass Boys and honoring Bill Monroe for many years. Doug has offered to come back at a future date and discuss his time at Gibson and other topics.
