Old wine from new bottles

Thanks to Ray O'Brien of Southern Welfare in Waterford, who sends this link to a performance on YouTube by Chris Thile's Punch Brothers band. The song is 'Brakeman's blues', recorded by Jimmie Rodgers, Father of Country Music, and subsequently by many others including the Father of Bluegrass Music. The video is from a live show and the atmosphere is as lively as the band.
