Rhonda turns ’em loose

WAMU’s Bluegrass Country has posted a new video of Rhonda Vincent & The Rage tearing through a cool medley of instrumental bluegrass favorites when they performed on the Katy Daley Show on February 2. Rhonda featured each of her top shelf pickers in turn (Brent Burke on reso, Ben Helson on guitar, Hunter Berry on fiddle and Aaron McDaris on banjo), and then closes it out herself on mandolin.

 

To quote the eminently quotable Katy Daley, the band was “fun, fun, fun” in the studio. There are other videos from this session on the Bluegrass Country YouTube page.

Who can list all 9 songs in that medley? Special kudos if you can also identify who is particularly identified with each tune!
