While we’re on this bluegrass/baseball theme, here is the video of Punch Brothers performing Take Me Out To The Ballgame on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight show on June 18 which Brance posted about on Tuesday.
Their take on the song is part of an ESPN effort to mark the 100th anniversary of the song’s debut. Nine popular artists will offer their versions and online fan voting will determine the winner. Other artists involved include jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli, country singer Grethen Wilson and 70s/80s rock icons REO Speedwagon.
The online voting will begin on June 29 with a winner announced on July 13.
