Phil Lanier popped in to Camp Adventure to put some mandolin parts down on an in-process recording project. He also put some vocal harmonies on this John Prine tune for the upcoming Jesse McReynolds’ project.
Phil is a multi-instrumentalist that seems to fill any need in the studio. You can hear his fine fiddlin’ on some of the recent Stanley Brothers tunes we recorded with Cliff Hale.
12/7/2016 is Bobby Osborne’s 85th Birthday. He’s not the oldest guy on the Grand Ole Opry, Jesse McReynolds has him beat for that, but he’s still going strong.
The Selfishness in Man is a great song we recorded in 2000. This was the first thing Bobby had done with country instrumentation – it was a fantabulous “classic” country album featuring one of the greatest singers of all time, Bobby Osborne.
