Skaggs/Hornsby – front and backstage view

Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs perform on CBS Early ShowRicky Skaggs and his collaboration with Bruce Hornsby have been the topic of a number of recent pieces on Bluegrass Today.

We told you earlier this month about the two appearing on the CBS Early Show with Skaggs’ band, Kentucky Thunder, on July 13, and have two updates that relate to that appearance.

First of all, there is video up on the CBS News site where you can watch their live performance online. They talk to Early Show host Hannah Storm about their musical pairings, and then perform Hornsby’s Dreaded Spoon, a new song with a nice Celtic flair.

Also recently published is a blog post from Nick Bailey, a publicist working for Shore Fire Media who is handling promotion for the Skaggs/Hornsby CD. Nick was in Raleigh, NC for the TV appearance, and has photos and some details on what transpired posted on the Shore Fire blog.
