GRAMMY and IBMA award-winning band Jerry Douglas and the Earls of Leicester features legendary dobro player Jerry Douglas with acclaimed writer, producer, and solo artist Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, renowned Nashville banjoist Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, second-generation fiddle phenom Johhny Warren, and Barry Bales, Douglas’ longtime bandmate in Alison Krauss and Union Station, on bass and vocals.

The group is the product of Douglas’ lifelong passion for the music of bluegrass pioneers Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and their band, the Foggy Mountain Boys – note the play on words in the group’s name.  This has been a longtime vision of Jerry Douglas, friend of Earl Scruggs.  Joining them will be special guest and bluegrass legend Del McCoury, who was bitten by the bluegrass bug when he heard Earl Scruggs’ banjo.  McCoury got his first taste of bluegrass when he played for Bill Monroe’s bluegrass boys in early 1963, and he has gone on to become one of bluegrass music’s greats.
