 “Homer Ledford was a Kentucky icon whose music touched not only Kentuckians, but music lovers across America and around the world. His talent was displayed not only in the music he loved to play, but also in the instruments he artfully crafted. His talent and craftsmanship were unique and unmatched. Glenna and I share in the sadness our Commonwealth feels today over the loss of one of Kentucky’s finest.”
