West Virginia bluegrass legend Everett Lilly has died at age 87.
Lilly's son, Daniel, says his father died Tuesday afternoon at his home in Clear Creek, W.Va.
Everett Lilly and his brother, Bea, began performing professionally in 1938 on Beckley radio station WJLS. Everett Lilly played mandolin and later the fiddle. Bea Lilly played guitar.
Banjo player Don Stover later joined them and they played throughout the South as the Lilly Brothers and Don Stover.
The Lilly Brothers and Don Stover was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2002 and the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
In the early 1950s, Everett Lilly also played with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.
Daniel Lilly says a wake is planned Saturday and the funeral will be held Sunday.
