Josh Williams goes above and beyond

If you’ve ever wondered how Josh Williams has won the hearts of so many bluegrass fans, this video from last weekend’s Doyle Lawson Bluegras Festival in Denton, NC may help you understand.

Saturday evening, after Josh closed out the show and the sound crew had already shut down the audio system, the crowd was insistent on hearing some more music – so Josh and his fine band strode to the front edge of the stage and delivered a flawless presentation of the Jimmy Martin classic, Mary Ann.

    A couple years ago at Grey Fox there was very short electrical outage during Josh’s set. He invited the audience to meet the band at the snow fence. Much to the delight of the audience, he did a couple songs up close and personal. When the power was restored, the band returned to the stage and finished out the set.
