Edgar Meyer and Béla Fleck - right music!

From the 2002 Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee.

If you haven't seen this DVD yet, or any of the other years, then do yourself a favour and look it up. There's just one or two tracks from each band, so the music is very varied, but it's played to an exceptional standard. I guarantee something for everyone’s taste.

My fav (Phil Lesh and Bob Wier, ex Grateful Dead) isn't on YouTube yet but this will do for now:

Edgar Meyer (bass) and Béla Fleck (banjo), I think it's called 'The B song'.

That really is a stunning piece of musicianship. I recently got a whole DVD of Béla Fleck & the Flecktones (Live at the Quick) and I'm convinced that they must be the most talented aggregation of instrumentalists in the world at the moment.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Ralph/Ruth (now I am confused) thank you. If you like what I do, make yourself at home. You are most welcome.

Brilliant! Even though this probably is meant for clogging, I kept envisioning Celtic dancers.

It gets my foot tapping, and at twice the speed of Edgar Meyer's I notice.
