If you're not used to bluegrass music don't be put off - this is soul music, played by the very very very best guys in the business, and playing with the man who more than anybody else started it all, John Hartford. He passed away several years ago, a blazing light. Watch this, and really listen; hell, close your eyes, lean back, listen, and learn something. Go ahead and drink a beer if you like.
