Boston, USA – Rounder Records released this week The Three Pickers, on a CD and DVD.
For one historic evening, American music legends Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson and Ricky Skaggs joined forces as The Three Pickers, to film a concert for Public Television.
The music they made before a live audience is as relaxed as a front porch picking session, celebrating the virtuosity and good humor of these three bluegrass masters. With special guest Alison Krauss.
“It was history made that night,” said Ricky Skaggs
The audio CD contains three bonus tracks: “Daybreak Blues” by Doc and Richard Watson, “Doin’ My Time” by Earl Scruggs with Family and Friends, and “Ridin’ That Midnight Train” by Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky
The DVD contains the bonus tracks “What Is a Home Without Love?” and “John Hardy,” plus an exclusive 30-minute documentary featuring interviews with and songs by The Three Pickers
