Mac Wiseman's Birthday Roast

Mac WisemanMac Wiseman of Crimora, Virginia, recently elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame, turns 90 this Saturday, May 23, 2015. His belated recognition recalls Duke Ellington who, when he was passed over for a Pulitzer Prize at 67, humorously observed that fate didn’t want him to be famous too soon.  The 'Voice with a Heart' has waited even longer, even though his broad appeal has survived for over 65 years since his first solo records. 

Highlights of his unique career include bringing twin fiddles to bluegrass, and introducing banjo geniuses Allen Shelton, Don Bryant and Eddie Adcock to the world.  His love of music begins with bluegrass and extends through the pop and country music worlds to a special love for sentimental heart songs from generations past.

 Both Jimmie Brown The Newsboy (1875) and Love Letters In The Sand (1931) were already classics
Mac Wiseman when Mac’s new interpretations became career hits. On one occasion he even teamed with big band leader Woody Herman to sing My Blue Heaven” (yes, it’s on Bear Family). Mac was toasted in last September‘s Bluegrass Unlimited by Don Bryant, who tells good stories on himself and Mac too.

Friends and colleagues will come from far and wide on Saturday to roast Mac on the occasion of his nine-decade anniversary, the release of a brand new book, 'All that’s Fit to Print,'and a collection of duets with old friend and admirer Merle Haggard.  It’s our good fortune that we continue to enjoy great music from Mac himself, whose long and wondrous career shows no signs of slowing down.
