Billy Strings & Bela Fleck - I couldn't resist my compulsion to feature Billy Strings so soon after his last appearance on SASS. This time out, Billy is joined by Bela Fleck, who along with Tony Trishka, is arguably one of the best banjoists in the world. Bela and Tony have redefined banjo playing by often seamlessly combining different styles into one song. I think of them as the Jimi Hendrixes of banjoists who are able to play from the whims and feelings of their musical spirit because of their mastery of the instrument.
Nora Brown - This 13-year-old has learned her banjo skills at the foot of 91-year-old old-timey player Lee Sexton. I'm going to follow her progress as I'm sure she's bound for banjo glory!
The Song Button - This week's Song Button artist is pedal steel guitar great, Pete Drake, whose early-1964, talking pedal steel guitar hit "Forever" will flow from your speakers when you push The Song Button!
Thanks For Tuning In & Remember To VOTE While You're Folking On!
