FOAOTMAD were sad to hear of the sudden death of luthier and musician Gerald Anderson in Virginia recently.
Gerald was not only a first class maker of guitars and mandolins but a talented musician in his own right playing with the band The Four Luthiers for many years.
We hope to have more information ready for the next issue of Old Time News
