Mike Witcher (Dobro) & Ryan Cavanaugh (Banjo)- Salt Creek
I really need to work on more single-string playing…
Introduce yourself to one of the greatest dobro-ers and one of the greatest banjoists in the country. Impressive stuff.
Give special attention to Cavanaugh’s pickin’ style. One of a kind.
You hit the nail on the head here: “And yet with how refined the Avetts are these days, I feel that we’ve lost something.”
The Avett Brothers - Cripple Creek (Live at the Double Door)
This is the song we’re learning in my banjo class right now. I know I should be listening to a good version to internalize the song, but damn if I ain’t a sucker for Scotty’s take-no-prisoners banjo-thrashing. His musicianship has come a long way in these last six years, that’s for sure. And yet with how refined the Avetts are these days, I feel that we’ve lost something.
Abigail Washburn - Nobody’s Fault But Mine
we do love us Abigail at FYBluegrass
In honor of the new Spotify integration with Tumblr, I’m posting “The Hitchhiker,” a kick-ass track from the new Infamous Stringdusters album “Silver Sky.”
These guys are great live, go see them if you get the chance!
