Bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs and piano rock icon Bruce Hornsby form an undeniable duo as they draw from the deep roots of mountain music to rework Hornsby originals as bluegrass songs as well as perform traditional favorites.

Background:
Virginia cool meets Kentucky thunder in a quintessential collaboration between multi-instrumentalist virtuoso Ricky Skaggs and genre-bending pianist Bruce Hornsby. Combined, the pair lay claim to an astonishing 15 Grammy awards. They first collaborated on a track for a Bill Monroe tribute album and went on to record an entire album together in 2007.

The New York Times praised the depth of the partnership: “Whether they were playing Mr. Hornsby’s songs or reworking Bill Monroe’s repertory, the arrangements often reached back to Celtic drones and modal fiddle tunes, the sounds of an isolated rural America. With Mr. Hornsby on piano, another Americana also peeked in: the polytonality of Aaron Copland and of modal jazz harmony, which happens to dovetail with those Celtic drones.”

In live performance, these pioneering voices of American music showcase the power of their musical connection and their effortless penchant for breaking apart musical categorizations.
