saw dick fegy in 1979 seattle with david bromberg (check out my own house cd) where they played three mandolins then switched to three fiddles.

i regret to inform you that immediately after posting this message i was trying to find more info on bromberg and learned that mr. fegy just passed away this last month. 

      from: john henley (jhenley@mail.utexas.edu)
in addition to being a busy session mandolinist, fegy was also an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist. an early 70s anthology of scott joplin pieces arranged for guitar featured fegy on one piece; unfortunately i can't remember which piece it was, but much of that material is presently available on a shanachie cd titled "the entertainer."
i don't think fegy recorded many tracks like this, but he was as good as anyone i've heard in this somewhat formal style of classic ragtime as done fingerstyle.
