The Earls of Leicester
More than just a bluegrass all-star album, The Earls of Leicester pays homage to the groundbreaking music of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs as it covers 14 of the duo’s most famous tunes. Dobro player/producer Jerry Douglas, mandolinist Tim O’Brien, singer/guitarist Shawn Camp, banjo player Charlie Cushman, bassist Barry Bales, and fiddler Johnny Warren make this all-star session sparkle with genuine musical chemistry. While staying true to the spirit of Flatt and Scruggs’ work, the group put their own stamp on these tracks with deft interplay and tasty solo moments. It's a royal treat for anyone who appreciates classic bluegrass or great American music in general.
