Granny Tells You What's Going On

RIP Gerald Evans

We always just called him Gerald, and we saw him playing in bands, and with his own band, for a number of years. He was a great fiddle player, had an eye for talent, and we once saw him exhibit the patience of a saint. We later saw his father playing the fiddle and realized where some of his musical talent hat come from.

Gerald Eugene Evans, Jr. died over the weekend, after a battle with cancer.

We last saw Gerald in March, 2009 at Wilmington, Ohio, where he was playing with Don Rigsby and Midnight Call.

That day, Gerald preformed his song, “Old Rocking Chair”, which has also been recorded by Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers on their new Rebel Release, Rambler’s Call.

We will miss Gerald.
