The late Monroe Jamison
Somewhere along the way I met Monroe Jamison, when he was a lawyer with the Penn Stuart firm. He was the mainstay of the live music at the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon, back when there was a festival to speak of. Some years later, we tried a case on opposite sides in Scott County, before Judge Kilgore. Some years after that, he became one of the new Public Defenders in the Western District of Virginia. About 20 years ago, his little band played at my sister's house, and my dad has uploaded some of this music to this video on YouTube.
