I had hoped to get to Palestine, TX, and meet and jam with Jerry some day.  My condolences to Margaret and their family.

I never had the opportunity to meet Jerry, but one of my dulcimer playing friends met him and said he was a very nice guy.  I have their East Texas Jam CD and it sounds like they all had such a good time while making it.  I'm sure he will be missed by his family and those who knew him.

Very sorry to hear about Jerry's death. You couldn't have found a better guy or more fun to be around. Condolences to all of his family.

What sad news. My sympathy goes out to Jerry's family and friends. Jerry influenced a lot of dulcimer players.

Though I never met Mr. Wright, Margaret's 12 Tunes series helped get me started on mountain dulcimer.  

I offer my sympathy to the Wright family.

Sorry to hear about Jerry.  I met him at Old Pal 3 years ago.  Nice guy.

I'm not sure how many are familiar with the Wright family from Texas.  Jerry Wright passed away on March 12th.  He had been ill for a while.  He played music with his wife Margaret and sons Hollis and Lloyd.
