Always thought Joe Mullins was one of the most under rated banjo players out there on tour.
Here is the traditional bluegrass music sound the way it should be played.
I first heard Joe Mullins with his band Traditional Grass at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival about 22 years ago. I thought that day that he was one of the best I’d ever heard. The work he did with Longview was fantastic. He really shines on the slow songs and 3/4 time.
I agree that he is underrated. Very clean and precise picker using very tasteful links. I have listened to them several years and finally saw them last fall at a local show.
We attended the “Industrial Strength Bluegrass” Festival in Ohio hosted by Joe Mullins last November. We had a wonderful time. Joe is as great on and off stage. Just a class act. His banjo picking is really good, sometimes I think he should play more. I have 3 signatures on my first banjo Joe Mullins, Mike Harman another class act and Tyson Tolliver a southern Illinois picker. That banjo is a wall hanger but would never part with it.
