Although my musical explorations have taken me a lot of places not usually associated with the banjo, bluegrass is my musical first love. Twenty years ago I set out to make my own version of a bluegrass record and Fair Weather was the result. The album earned Compass Records, and me, our first GRAMMY awards and I’m really proud of how well the tracks have stood the test of time. With a long list of collaborators and bluegrass pals including Sam Bush, Béla Fleck, Vince Gill, Claire Lynch, Stuart Duncan, Tim O’Brien, Tony Rice, Missy Raines and many more, Fair Weather represents a great musical moment in time for me. I’m really glad to be able to make this limited edition vinyl version available for the first time.
