Twisted Oak Winery is pleased to welcome “Jerry Douglas presents The Earls of Leicester” to our hilltop in Vallecito on Saturday, May 27th!
The Grammy© and IBMA award-winning band The Earls of Leicester encompasses dobro great Jerry Douglas plus acclaimed writer, producer, and solo artist Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, renowned Nashville banjoist Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, second-generation fiddle phenom Johnny Warren, and Barry Bales, Douglas’ longtime bandmate in Alison Krauss and Union Station, on vocals and bass. The group is the product of the band’s shared lifelong passion for the music of bluegrass pioneers Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and their band the Foggy Mountain Boys, and pays homage to their seminal work in the ’50s and ’60s which created the template for what we know as contemporary bluegrass, and transcended traditional genre barriers to popularize the music with an unprecedented mass audience.
