Introducing Jami Lynn and Dylan James

I'm on the performers committee of the Great River Folk Fest for the first time this year,, and Jami Lynn's name came across the email. What a fine string banjo player for such a young pup from South Dakota; and he's a pretty good flat picker. Here's a link to her website. The duo formed like this: Black Hills duo Jami Lynn & Dylan James met on the street in the summer of 2012. Their fortuitous meeting not only revealed their shared love of folk, bluegrass, and jazz, but marked the beginning of an ambitious duo project harnessing Jami’s powerful vocals and Dylan’s first rate flat-picking skills.

  1. I like this, Dave. It reminds me of "Sittin' On Top of the World", "Muleskinner" and other great bluegrass type numbers I first heard on Don McLean's "Playin' Favorites".
