Two nice live performances from the first IBMA award show from 1991.
"You could debate endlessly about which Bluegrass Band was "best" - but from both an historic standpoint as well as unsurpassed musicianship you'd have a hard time picking a band better than Tony Rice, JD Crowe, Doyle Lawson, Bobby Hicks AND Vassar Clements on Twin Fiddles, Jerry Douglas and Mark Schatz. Bluegrass fans owe a debt to the fact that these superstars all put aside their own bands long enough to form THIS band - and then with the possibility of making any music they wanted, they concentrated on "The Classics". Every one of these musicians has made a living for decades pushing the cutting edge of string acoustic music - but for THIS project they paid homage to Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, Osborne Brothers and the first generation of giants. Everyone who plays Bluegrass today stands on these shoulders. Dennis - thanks for sharing this! " -Mark Fowler, Youtube comments
