Coming soon to a folk festival near me: The Earls of Leicester

The Earls of Leicester will be performing at this year’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival August 6th-9th. Here they are playing ‘Rolling in My Sweet Baby’s Arms’.

The Earls of Leicester are a tribute band for the music of Scruggs and Flatts (see info here). They’re all pretty talented, but I’m especially a fan of Jerry Douglas and Tim O’Brien, although apparently Tim won’t be playing with them when they’re at the folk festival. This is because he’s touring with his other band, Hot Rize, who will be performing at the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival in Stony Plain the week before.
