Young prodigy Sam Bush was already an up-and-coming fiddler when the sight of youthful Ricky Skaggs on TV, accompanying Flatt & Scruggs, inspired him to acquire his first mandolin at age 11. The talented innovator and multi-instrumentalist co-founded New Grass Revival and played with them for 18 years before collaborating with artists including Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Béla Fleck. Working as a solo artist for two decades, he’s released seven albums and a live DVD, and received the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist.
