    That hits hard. Nolan Faulkner was one of my main inspirations. Pretty early on in my playing career I found his Old Homestead album "The Legendary Kentucky Mandolin of Nolan Faulkner". I soaked up every note of that record & am still trying to play "Gypsy Girl" & "Bluegrass Morning" at the tempo he plays them. One of the greatest mandolin records of all time, imho. A sound on mandolin like you've never heard before, Monroe-like, bluesy as hell but definitely his own, unique thing. I can't say enough about the playing of Nolan Faulkner. Going to put that album on now & be sad for while.

    I grew up in the Detroit area and had the pleasure on knowing Nolan. Great, great mandolin player. He taught me how to play chop chords. Go in peace.

    Just saw this. Nolan was a true Urban Appalachian musician...took his music from the hills to the Big City and made it work. R.I.P.
