Mike Auldridge

Mike Auldridge's pioneering work in the 1970s with the Seldom Scene helped to expand bluegrass' musical horizons, while his work as a sideman with artists such as Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt helped introduce the Dobro to a new generation of listeners.  He also served as an inspirational role model for multiple generations of younger musicians, including Jerry Douglas and Rob Ickes. Auldridge passed away on December 28, 2012, shortly after the Three Bells recording sessions were completed.
