Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester
Bluegrass,Cover/Tribute Band/Performer

Jerry Douglas presents The Earls of Leicester, a bluegrass powerhouse that came together to present the legendary music of '50s and '60s icons Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt. The band released its eponymous debut in 2014 to immediate acclaim, including the 2015 Grammy for Bluegrass Album of the Year and sweeping wins at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards. With their second album, the July 2016 release "Rattle & Roar," the Earls have conjured up a fresh batch of Flatt & Earl Scruggs songs, delivered with the Earls' now-signature blend of homage, virtuosity, and perspective. Douglas remains the band's producer and hypnotic dobroist, joined by Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, Jeff White on the high harmony and mandolin, Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, Johnny Warren on fiddle, and Barry Bales from Alison Krauss & Union Station on vocals and bass.
