featuring: Bob Brozman, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Martin Simpson, Mike Auldridge & Freddie Roulette
As country singer John Anderson once said, the trouble with middle-of-the-road is "a fella can get run over out there." Slide guitar players have known this all along. Their music has mostly steered clear of the center line, and the fickle glare of public attention. This DVD features five modern slide guitar masters whose music is all over the map. The set of performances includes reincarnated Delta blues, Indian ragas, swinging bluegrass, and pop tunes.
