This coming Friday (11/11), Lonesome River Band will not only be the musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, Sammy Shelor will appear as a guest with Steve Martin for official recognition of Sammy as the winner of the 2011 Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music.
Though airing Friday night, the show will be taped on Thursday afternoon in New York. We plan to have a photographer and correspondent on site to provide a bird’s eye view of the proceedings, which we hope to have up before the show airs at 11:35 p.m. on the 11th.
The band will arrive in NYC on Wednesday to rehearse with Martin that afternoon. Sounds like a hot time in the Big Apple for LRB.
