Absolutely love this toe tapping stuff especially when it is delivered by fine musicians. I sure do appreciate the talent which makes me realize there are no limits to how far a person can advance with music. Cheers.

I really appreciate fine musicians, you all make it look so easy and relaxed, especilly Bill on the banjo! Good stuff. To bad people don't invest more in themselves and start at an early age, instead of a frustrating hobby as an adult.

A great mandolin duet of Sarah Jarosz’s original tune, recorded live at the Marshall Mandolin Summit.
