Senator Robert C. Byrd

June 29, 2010

Yesterday morning, I was shocked to hear of the passing of Senator Robert Byrd.  It had just been reported that he was hospitalized earlier in the week.  No matter what people thought of his politics, Senator Byrd loved our country – our Constitution – and our great state of West Virginia.

I met Senator Byrd when I was in high school during a trip to our State Capital.  After that, I learned about his love of the fiddle…I thought it would be a fitting ‘tribute’ for him today to share a few videos with you.

“Will the Circle Be Unbroken” from a recording in 1978 on an album called “Mountain Fiddler”

and another montage that begins with him fulfilling a dream of playing on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry.

Thank you, Senator Byrd, for your years and years of
dedicated service to the people of Wild Wonderful West Virginia.
