Saw these guys do this recently in Florida. Check this guy and his Jerry inspired acoustic style. I talked with him quite a bit and apparently he has been pretty much homeless for months and the guy is a beast. He's only in his early 20's and he doesn't even currently own a guitar! He plays the bassist's, who is an instrument collector. He seems completely obsessed with Jerry and his style (naming specific performances of certain tunes from shows that probably predate his parents). They also played a smoking hot "Me And My Uncle" that day with a dark 10 minute bluegrass jam on the front end.

That is amazing! Will somebody get this guy a banjo?

I suspect that if he played a banjo like that it would spontaneously erupt in flames, creating a fire hazard.

I was in a country band that did Workin Man Blues, but our own arrangement. Pales in comparison to this, however.
