Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

This is another living room recording from around 1998, with the trio we called Wry Whiskey. I ran across this recording of the old Carter Family/Flatt & Scruggs standard when I was looking for something else. The guitar player is Brian Clancey, and the bass player is Tom Speth. It takes a brave boy to play You Are My Flower on banjo. Okay, I don't exactly sing like Lester, neither.

You sound more like Lester than I do...Matter of fact, you sound more like Earl than I do...!!!!! Very nicely done. Thanks for posting...I'll have to give you a "virtual" thumbs-up as for some reason it says I'm not signed in....

Don, that's great. My whole family loved it. I especially like the way the banjo volume changes, adding a little more dynamic and dramatic character to it. A real winner.

I always enjoy your playing Don. Smooth and clean. At least you don't sound much better than me singin'.
