Music hath charms

Thanks to C. Paul Lyttle of the Moniaive Bluegrass Festival in Scotland, and to 'Gerry' who sent him this YouTube link found on the Mandolin Cafe website (that wouldn't be Gerry Madden, would it?).

The video will please all of us who feel bluegrass is close to nature; it should have a special appeal for those who know Josh Williams (USA) from his visits as a teenage mandolin player with Special Consensus about ten years ago, who is now an acclaimed bandleader, singer, and multi-award-winning guitarist. As the photo shows, Josh gets on well with animals. In the video, one of his fans just wanted to get as close to him as possible.

A further bonus: Terry Baucom, the Duke of Drive, is playing banjo.
