Not only did he record and release his first full length project, out this past July, but he also earned a nomination for SPBGMA Fiddle Player of the Year.
Most recently, Greg had been playing fiddle and touring with Remington Ryde, a band based out of Pennsylvania, which has been extremely convenient for Greg and his wife, Deena (Frankhouser) Moore, as they also make their home in Pennsylvania.

And so it was that after many years, I finally got the chance to meet Melvin in person. He lived up to every one of my expectations. The Melvin I'd come to know through his music was the same Melvin I met standing in the lobby of the Nashville Convention Center.
Melvin and his late brother, Ray were inducted into the Kentucky Hall of Fame in 2011.
Melvin Goins was 83 at death. He entertained bluegrass fans for 65 years.
