This concert recorded for public television is a summit meeting of three of the most legendary bluegrass musicians around. Earl Scruggs pioneered bluegrass banjo technique, Doc Watson was the key bluegrass guitarist of the '60s, and Ricky Skaggs spent the '70s and '80s bringing the tradition into contemporary parlance. Here they tackle a mix of traditional songs and original material, lovingly picked by all three, with a minimum of fuss and plenty of country soul. Singing and picking together, they are the ultimate bluegrass dream team; high lonesome harmonies and earthy-but-flawless instrumental runs are the rule of the day. During sections of the performance, each artist got a solo spot accompanied by his own musicians, but it's the trio material that's truly awe-inspiring, displaying the simple majesty that's at the heart of the best bluegrass.
