What If Jerry Douglas Formed A Band?

Read about dobro maestro Jerry Douglas’s new band project

 

 

Jerry Douglas is regarded as one of the greatest dobro players of all time.  On top of that, he has been at the forefront of many projects exploring new musical territory as his influence in contemporary roots music continues to grow.

His bio is outstanding – fourteen-time Grammy winner, long solo career, member of Allison Krauss’ esteemed Union Station, producer (Krauss, the Del McCoury Band, Maura O’Connell and Jesse Winchester), co-Music Director of the brilliant BBC TV series Transatlantic Sessions, guest appearances with notables (Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons and Eric Clapton, to name only three), and leader of bluegrass super-group Earls of Leicester.

How can he possibly add to his wondrous career achievements?

The answer is to get a band together to explore new territories – infuse, groove and jazz into bluegrass for a new sound.  We haven’t been able to locate the band members’ names yet, but we’ll keep on trying.  Check out their TOUR DATES.  Listening Through The Lens will witness the outfit at The Festy Experience this October.

The Jerry Douglas Band‘s album is called What If and is out August 18 via Rounder Records.  Here is a live version of the first track from the new album, filmed at the iconic Station Inn in Nashville.
