Sunday Morning Coming Down

If I were to list the honours bestowed on this morning’s Country act, I imagine that (like me) few of you will know who I mean.

He is an inductee into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame, and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and a recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship, the United States’ highest honour in the folk and traditional arts.

But if we did it the other way round and said: “Who is Mac Wiseman?” then  I suspect most will shrug their shoulders (not you, George, put your hand down).

This is Mac Wiseman, still recording at the grand old age of 92 (or ’92 years of age’, as football commentators seem compelled to say when describing someone’s age, like that makes them sound more articulate than saying ’92 years old’):
