June 7: Artists Gather for NCTA Benefit Concert in D.C.

The Masters of the Steel String Guitar concert reunites three of the original artists who participated in the NCTA’s legendary tours of the same name a quarter century ago: Jerry Douglas, Albert Lee, and Wayne Henderson, who now stand at the pinnacle of their respective musical worlds. It also introduces some amazing younger players, just as the tours of the ‘90s did: 25-year-old St. Louis bluesman Marquise Knox and 11-year-old Blue Ridge flatpicker Presley Barker, joined by special guests 13-year-old fiddler Kitty Amaral, bluegrass singer extraordinaire Dudley Connell, and blues harmonica wizard Phil Wiggins.
