When the Earls of Leicester stopped for a show at The Station Inn in Nashville, Shelly Swanger was there to capture the moment.
The band is a special project group that Jerry Douglas put together as a tribute to the music of Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs & the Foggy Mountain Boys. They have a new album out on Rounder and are performing a limited number of dates in support.
Jerry is on reso-guitar, Charlie Cushman on banjo, Johnny Warren on fiddle (whose father, Paul was a member of The Foggy Mountain Boys), Barry Bales on bass, Shawn Camp on guitar, and Shawn Lane on mandolin. Tim O’Brien had played mandolin and sang on the album.
