So many things to love about that clip. First off, that's just a classic tune. And then there's the way everyone looks. The description doesn't say what year it is, but it obviously goes back a ways. For one thing, John Hartford is in it, and we lost him several years ago. (Isn't he a hoot, by the way? "I didn't win a durn thing!")
But my gosh--how young everyone is! Del McCoury with no grey. Jerry Douglas without that funky microphone he uses these days. Alison Krauss before she had a stylist. (Isn't odd, by the way, that she won the female vocalist that year, but she doesn't sing in this clip?)
I love watching the microphone jockeying going on. It's not easy to maneuver on a stage with that many fiddle bows flying around!
