Tall and Deep

People like bluegrass. It's had a following amongst a lot of hip and young people. A lot of college kids like bluegrass.
~Dolly Parton

I don't know if Dolly's right, but I know this unhip person likes it. For Music Monday, performances that are food for my spirit by Michael Cleveland, Tommy Emmanuel, and Jason Isbell:

Michael Cleveland:

Australian Tommy Emmanuel with Nashvillian Jason Isbell:

Bonus: an amazing guitar version of Somebody That I Used To Know

Michael Cleveland is an excellent fiddler. Captures the spirit of bluegrass beautifully.

Really enjoyed Tommy Emmanuel...what a great guitar player. And I was glad he dedicated Deep River Blues to Doc Watson (who wrote the song).

And "Somebody that I Used to Know" is a marvel. Acoustic and electric guitars in perfect collaboration!
