Jerry Douglas first picked up a dobro at the age of eight after his father (a steelworker who played bluegrass in his spare time), introduced him to the instrument at a Flatt and Scruggs concert. At last, he is returning the favor with Earls of Leicester, an homage to the extraordinary 1954-1965 era of Flatt and Scruggs’ catalogue. It’s an all-star band with Ronnie McCoury, Shawn Camp, and others, and just last month they took home the 2015 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album. Take a trip back to the source on Sunday afternoon.
