Great stuff. Sam is either not challenged by ANYTHING or he hides it very well. No matter what Sam is playing, he's rockin' back & forth, smilin', lookin' around.......what a gift!

So young......that looks like about the mid 80's.......and with all the years since to practice they are even better now!

That's an excellent show. It was the Lonesome Pine Special (PBS out of Kentucky) circa 1988. I taped it back then and recently transferred to DVD. Early in the show, Sam plays Jethro's 2 point mandolin (it was shortly after Jethro died), on a very Jethro-approved version of Tennessee Wagonner. Sam and Mike do the requisite Ralph's Banjo Special. Sam plays slide National mandolin. Great show and very influential on me way back when.

Lonesome Pine Special had a variety of great acts: from the SubDudes, to New Grass Revival, Peter Rowan, a bluegrass band consisting of a very young Alison Krauss/Tony Rice/David Grisman/Jerry Douglas, the first TV appearance (that I'm aware of) of the Flecktones (w/ Howard Levy). I watched that show as religiously as Austin City Limits.

Weren't we all!

Mid '80s is about right ('86 I think) I too, have that on videotape. What a wonderful show it is. If only PBS would bring back those kind of acts rather than most of the stuff they now have on Austin City Limits (etc)...
...and Fire on the Mountain with David Holt (on TNN). Boy, that show was inspiration for a lifetime. :)
