David Chernack’s Playlist – Bluegrass Double Plays II

Time for more bluegrass double plays! Bluegrass is all about borrowing from tradition—even the first bluegrass pickers were inspired by jazz, Celtic, and country western styles. Today, modern masters of the bluegrass genre look to the classic melodies and lyrics of their forefathers to refine the music and make it new again. James King remakes Jimmy Martin’s “Sophronie,” Jimmy Gaudreau covers Hot Rize’s “Bending Blades,” and Chris Eldridge revisits Norman Blake’s “Ginseng Sullivan” on this playlist. Enjoy these bluegrass double plays!
