    Emory...so good. His playing dazzles, is inherently musical, humorous and lovely.

    Amazing. Emory is a great player and this is one of my favorite tune.
    And I can't help but wonder when we'd be able to see this type of performance IRL again. Sigh.

    Fantastic, Emory is such a great picker! I highly suggest his Pale Rider cd, one of my favorites, particularly the title track.

    Emory used to teach at the BC Bluegrass Workshops, back in the day when Chris & Sally Jones were also there. One of the finest sets of music I ever saw there featured (THE) Frankie Rogers on fiddle, Emory Lester in mandolin, Kristen Scott Benson on banjo, Mickey Harris on bass, & Cody Kilby on guitar. The stage repartee between Frankie & Emory was priceless and the musicianship was electric. I think i have a cassette tape somewhere off my little Marantz 2 speed....

    Emory is such a talented musician. He did a duo set at Wintergrass where he sang and played guitar or mandolin & Mark Johnson played banjo.... that was another magic set.
