Do y'all know these players?  

Doc plays with the Dismembered Tennesseans.  I don't know the name of Ed Brown's band.  

i really like the way these old guys play

Some will remember Ed from his association with Fred Sullivan & the albums they put out as "Brown, Sullivan & Co."  Marvelous examples of melodic twin banjo playing.  Ed used to come up to KY for the Festival of the Bluegrass, but I haven't seen him in years.  It was always fun to pick with him; he could bear down on solid bluegrass just as easily as he could do the intricate things he & Fred recorded on "Magnum Banjos."  Check here for more info on those earlier recordings:

The Cumberland Band also put out a 4-song recording called "ODE to OME", recorded on Ode F styles.

I got my copy through Fred Sullivan back in 2005.
