Hoot Hester

Post by kev » Wed Aug 31, 2016 8:14 am

I was very sad to hear about the death of the great Hoot Hester. Maybe not a huge star but his name graced many an album sleeve. He was part of the Opry House Band until 2014 and was one of the original members of the Time Jumpers. I saw him a number of times in Nashville, where he also appeared regularly at Robert's Western World as part of his daughter's band Rachael Hester and The Tennessee Walkers, including one memorable occasion when they were joined on guitar by Kenny Vaughan from Marty Stuart's band!

Not familiar with his stuff, but he certainly was a mean fiddler!

Read this today, sad to hear.
Ask forgiveness, not permission.
