In memory of my Uncle Frank, who passed away on Wednesday, January 21st, 2015, here's a set of traditional bluegrass and Appalachian music for a Virginia mountain man and gentle giant.

That's my mom giving her brother-in-law the classic Meuse sisters cheek squeeze in the early 80s. My grandma, originally a Meuse, and all of her sisters -- and possibly all female ancestors from this line -- were unrivaled cheek squeezers.

Usually he was too tall to have to worry about that too much. Ha ha!
