Gerald is well known in Texas music circles as a multi-instrumental genius. He is less well known across the country, however. Local performances with his group Acoustic Plus, featuring Texas fiddle legend Texas Shorty, showcase his wide range of talents on banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle. In addition to impressive performance skills, Gerald has always been quick to share his knowledge. He began teaching almost from the time he started playing. His many students include Dixie Chick, Emily. He has been on the Camp Bluegrass banjo faculty since 1989. His special topic seminars such as “25 Banjo Licks You must Know,” and “How Not To Sound Bad and Other Musical Survival Tips” are very popular. I first met Gerald at Bill Monroe’s McKinney, Texas Bluegrass Festival in 1972. He stood out right away – a long haired banjo player with cowboy boots and the only person under age 30 (other than me) at the festival. He was sitting under a tree and picking a 1970s Gibson RB250 banjo. This chance meeting began a 30 year friendship that continues today.
