NANCY, THE MUSEUM, AND THE LESLEY RIDDLE CONNECTION
Lesley Riddle was one of the most influential figures in early country music. Lesley taught Mother Maybelle Carter (Johnny Cash's mother-in-law) his unique picking style, and was responsible for much of the music The Carter Family recorded. While still in high school, Nancy met and performed with Lesley Riddle. He taught Nancy his picking style on guitar, and they became lifelong friends.
In 2020, Nancy wrote a short article about it for The Birthplace Of Country Music Museum in Bristol Tennessee/Virginia. And now in the summer of 2022, the Museum features an exhibit of the time Nancy spent with Lesley Riddle! Take a look at Nancy's trip to the Museum, and see a portion of her featured exhibit:
