Join Bruce, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder in North Carolina.
Ricky Skaggs describes this show as what Bill Monroe would have sounded like “if he had a really, really good piano player”.
There are a number of call-backs to the Hornsby/Skaggs record – and Uncle Pen, which Rainbow’s Cadillac descended from on the Harbor Lights release.
