Lydia Stewart-Morrow - Redd's Daughter
Lydia, too, had music in her blood. She learned how to play the banjo many years ago from a man who played in a Bluegrass band named, Jim Smoke. She became really good at it!
When she was very young, Redd had her take accordion lessons to see how she would do. The music teacher told Redd, 'Redd, you're wasting your money, forget about it!"
