Wilmore, Kentucky. As far as I know this was his last performance, before his

About the artist
Josh Graves is considered a pioneer dobro player, and was among the first
musicians to have used the instrument in playing bluegrass music. Although he
has had a productive solo career, Graves initially came to popular prominence
as a member of Flatt and Scruggs' Foggy Mountain Boys, with whom he played
from 1957 until the group dissolved in 1969.
Graves remains one of the most outstanding dobro players in both the bluegrass
and country music genres.
