Award-winning guitarist Jim Hurst has played with Sara Evans, Claire Lynch, Missy Raines, and Trisha Yearwood. His unique approach to guitar uses a hybrid of flat-picking and finger-style techniques, and he has earned two IBMA awards as Guitarist of the Year. Hurst will be joined for this performance by Dirk Johnson, piano; Rick Mauldin, bass; and Ric McClure, drums.
This program is presented as part of the annual museum celebration Bluegrass and Beyond, supported by the Crump family and Cotten Music Center in honor of George A. and Marjorie S. Crump, and takes place in the Museum's Ford Theater.
