published 5 years ago by The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour Vodcast

ACOUSTIC EIDOLON, featuring Joe Scott on double neck guitjo (a 14 string banjo/guitar combination that he can play both necks simultaneously) and Hannah Alkire on cello, are from Colorado and have graced stages throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Canada.� With eleven CDs and a DVD to their credit, these masterful artists continue to captivate audiences throughout the world with their signature “new acoustic� sound and boundless possibilities in blending Celtic, Folk, World & Latin music influences. Their latest is 'Lucky Man' a retrospective of Joe's 35-year journey through music. WILLIE WATSON is best-known for his work with his previous band Old Crow Medicine Show and a large part of the reason that banjo and guitar driven music is heard everywhere in the air these days. Born in Watkins Glen, NY, Watson discovered North Carolina Appalachian music and began to unearth old Folkways albums. His debut solo album, Folk Singer Vol. 1, was produced by David Rawlings at Woodland Sound Studios, the studio he co-owns with associate producer Gillian Welch in Nashville, TN, over the course of a pair of two-day sessions, for their own Acony Records label. The album spans ten songs from the American folk songbook and features Watson�s skillful and subtle banjo and guitar accompaniments with his soaring vocals.
