The Cluster Pluckers appearance on PBS sponsored Austin City Limits. There are no words to adequately express how much fun we had!
My Friend Christopher Henry & I Co-Wrote, Recorded, & Shot This Video Earlier In The Pandemic Summer Of 2020.
Working with the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band is especially special for me because Peter is not only an excellent band leader with an incredible resume’, Peter is also a dear and trusted friend.
I hope you enjoy one of Peter’s signature tunes:
When I was about eight years old, I had been playing guitar for a couple of years, and sitting in at dances, playing at the Moose Lodge, the VFW Club and the American Legion in Martinsburg, West Virginia. It was about this time that I heard Kenny Baker play fiddle with Bill Monroe at a show in Salem, VA, at Lakeside Amusement Park. From the moment I heard the sweet huge, round dark warm tone that Kenny made, my love affair with the fiddle started & a lifelong friendship with Kenny Baker began.
I‘m fiddling with Peter Rowan, David Grisman and The String Cheese Incident at the Gathering of the Vibs in Bridgeport, CT
**A Few Of These Videos Were Filmed Well Before The Digital Age But I Feel They Are Important. I Hope You Enjoy Them**
