Hartford, NY ~ Firehouse ~ Ernie Sir Cecil Sykes ~ Tennessee Mafia Jug Band ~ 2015 ~ CP153017
Ern is from Long Gisland NY but has kicked around Nashville for decades with his big bass fiddle and bag of good ol country songs. Heís known for both weepers, and jolly numbers from Roger Miller. His singing has brought audiences to tears, and that is on the Roger Miller numbers. Ern likes to tell folks that he has been a true bluegrass pro; with Bill Monroes Blue Grass Boys, with Don Reno, and with the Bluegrass Cardinals. If you hear vague muttering from the back of the stage during their show, you can be sure it is Ernie making wiseacre asides (behinds?). Ern also shares the distinction (?) with Liíl Roy Lewis of being the only hand trumpet players in bluegrass or hillbilly music.
