Today I read a long post about Tony Williamson. He just received the North Carolina Heritage Award.
Announced as a 2018 North Carolina Heritage Award recipient, Williamson, from Chatham County, is described as “a visionary musician, composer, musical instrument expert, teacher and mentor.” He blends multiple genres but still remains rooted in bluegrass.
The following video is a presentation of Tony Williamson.

Music is the backdrop of his life. Enjoy filmmaker Rodrigo Dorfman’s short documentary on 2018 North Carolina Heritage Awardee Tony Williamson.
Tone is a real expert for vintage instruments. He can tell many stories about the instruments and their history. He has given many presentations with vintage instruments and has recorded some great albums.
You can watch Tony Williamson and some great old mandolins in my playlist. The first four videos are from a presentation in the North Carolina Museum of History, Tony Williamson shows and plays a Gibson F5 mandolins, an F4 mandolin and a K2 mandocello.
