“His roots run deep as an oak’s, but he also brings a vital, modern sensibility to the music, growing it into the future without losing its authentic mountain feel.” —Chicago Tribune

Ricky Skaggs, lead vocals, mandolin, guitar; Andy Leftwich, fiddle; Cody Kilby, lead guitar; Paul Brewster, tenor vocals, rhythm guitar; Eddie Faris, baritone vocals, rhythm guitar; Justin Moses, banjo; Scott Mulvahill, bass, bass vocals

Fourteen-time Grammy-winner Ricky Skaggs has become synonymous with both bluegrass and country music. A virtuosic mandolinist capable of surfing genres (from bluegrass to newgrass to country pop and back), Skaggs burst onto the scene as a young’un with Flatt and Scruggs, cut his teeth as a teen in Ralph Stanley’s band, and then brought a little soul back to mainstream country as a solo artist that showcased him as both a picker and singer. With the all-star members of Kentucky Thunder, Skaggs performs his trademark interpretation of high-lonesome sounds that Chet Atkins credited with “single-handedly saving country music.” Join Skaggs on a timeless trip through the best of what bluegrass has to offer.
