Retiring Kentucky banjo master J.D. Crowe to get honorary doctorate at UK

A legion of associates and musicians the Central Kentucky banjo legend has inspired address him simply and respectfully as "Crowe." To the fans who have followed his music over the past six decades, he will always be "J.D." And with his retirement from touring set to begin, J.D. Crowe will receive an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Kentucky. That will make the banjoist "Dr. Crowe." Just don't call him that.
