EVANS, GERALD JR. (1959-2010)

Son of a professional fiddle player, Gerald Evans was born in eastern Kentucky and grew up in Portsmouth, where he learned to play both fiddle and mandolin. He worked with the Goins Brothers, Dave Evans, Wayne Lewis, Wildwood Valley Boys, Don Rigsby and Midnight Call, and the Traditional Grass. In addition to the recordings he did with the Traditional Grass as a group, he and Joe Mullins cut a fiddle and banjo album in the old-time style. After the Traditional Grass quit the road, Gerald formed his own band, Paradise, based out of Cincinnati.
