    That's Ashley Monroe and the Americans. They're playing "Jubilee." Haunting. The mandolin plays a leading role, and it's well executed.
    One watch by night, one watch by day...if you get confused, just listen to the music play.

    Came across the show while channel surfing last night. What a treat. I'm also a big Pokey LaFarge fan, another plus.
    Peace
