Picky FIngers Podcast: Sammy Shelor

by Keith Billik

Don't miss the latest episode featuring Sammy Shelor of the Lonesome River Band! Sammy is one of the most influential banjo players of his generation, having won the International Bluegrass Music Association's Banjo Player of the Year Award five times, as well as the 2011 Steve Martin prize, and many other accolades.

Sammy discusses how he gets his sense of drive & groove, his early influences, the trials & tribulations of being a bandleader, and what instrument he would play if he were starting over (Spoiler Alert: it's not the banjo!) Hosted and produced by Keith Billik.
