Dan Crary

Flatpicking guitarist Dan Crary was born and raised in Kansas. It was there that he first developed an interest in guitar, particularly the steel-string, flat-top version favored by artists like Doc Watson. In 1968, Crary helped found the Bluegrass Alliance, and used Watson's influence as a jumping-off point for innovation in the genre. Throughout the 1970s, Crary appeared with the group Sundance, which included fiddler Byron Berline and banjoist John Hickman. He also developed his reputation as a master interpreter of traditional music (like that written for the fiddle) for six- and 12-string guitars. His albums include 1983's Guitar, which was a who's who in the new bluegrass scene of the time. Béla Fleck, Sam Bush, and Mark O'Connor all contributed to the record, which included modern bluegrass interpretations of classical music pieces. 1990 saw the establishment of California with Berline and Hickman; the combo experimented even further with bluegrass' intersections into other genres, and stayed active even as Crary appeared with his other projects, including Men of Steel with Genovese flatpicking master Beppe Gambetta. MOS released a live recording in spring 2003. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

@gilcarleton , Agreed that Dan and Tony are extremely gifted. Although, it's hard to talk about the best flat picker in the world without mentioning Larry Keel. IMO.

It is tough to say if Dan Crary or Tony Rice is the best flat picker in the world. One thing for sure, they are both world class. I have seen Dan live three times and hope to have the opportunity to see him again.

I first saw Dan Crary in '74 with Doc Watson and Norman Blake. I could have died that night and gone to heaven and it would have been all right.

Great flat picking - thought he was a finger style guitarist - sounds like it!
Report as inappropriate
Fascinating take of Bluegrass on classical (I'm listening to 'Lady's Fantasy'). Excellent fingerwork, particularly on the harmonics.

Great flatpicking guitarist! Thanks again Pandora!
