The Ryan and Marty mando jam

Ryan Paisley jams with Marty Stuart & the Fabulous Superlatives at the 2015 Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival - photo by Frank BakerHow long does it take to establish a bluegrass tradition? I mean if something happens more than once at a festival, when do we start expecting it every time?

Well… during last weekend’s Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival, Ryan Paisley made his second appearance as a special guest during the evening show by Marty Stuart & his Fabulous Superlatives. Stuart brought him out to jam on a couple of Bill Monroe tunes, to the delight of the two of them and the large audience assembled for the show.

So can we expect this anytime both Marty and Danny Paisley appear at the same event? Or only at Delaware Valley?

Inquiring minds, and all that.

In any event, here they are picking through Southern Flavor and Bluegrass Breakdown in fine style.


Hat tip to Steve Ramm who shot the video. He has others from Delaware Valley on his YouTube page.
