The Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas
This Nashville-based six-piece band had one musical mission in 2013: preserve, promote, and revive the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs for longtime-admirers and introduce a new generation to their genre-defining sound. Mission accomplished. Winning a Grammy Award for “Best Bluegrass Album” and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), The Earls of Leicester featuring Barry Bales (bass, vocals), Shawn Camp (guitar, lead vocals), Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitars), Jerry Douglas (dobro, vocals), Johnny Warren (fiddle, bass vocals), and Jeff White (mandolin, vocals) offer a selection of songs that fully capture the pure joy and supreme musicianship that propel their every performance. Their new musical mission: allows fans to escape the stress of the world and hold onto the beautiful feeling their music brings them, even for just a while.
