Final Notes, Earl Kenneth Murphy

Missouri-born fiddler Earl Kenneth Murphy passed away peacefully at his home in Athens, Georgia, on March 12, at the age of 93. Earl was honored for his artistry by the Old-Time Herald at MerleFest in 2010. He bounced back quickly from a heart attack last October, resumed his routine of playing daily in his kitchen, and continued to host weekly old-time and bluegrass sessions. Earl will be dearly missed by his family and many friends.
