Noam et al mashing it in B

For anyone who may have scoffed at Noam Pikelny’s recent suggestion that he has been cramming on J.D. Crowe’s music of late, we offer further proof in the form of this video shot backstage during his current tour.

Noam is out with Barry Bales, Bryan Sutton, Luke Bulla, and Jesse Cobb to promote his new Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe album on Compass. Here they are tearing up Born To Be With You, which Crowe grassified from the doo wop original in 1971 on his Black Jack (Ramblin’ Boy) album with the Kentucky Mountain Boys.


Now that’s bluegrass!
