Celebrating and supporting the work of the National Council for the Traditional Arts, Masters of American Music brings together a group of exceptional musicians whose artistry is rooted in the American experience. Featuring Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell, artists that stand at the artistic apex of their respective musical worlds, the concert also introduces some amazing younger musicians: 19-year-old Maryland jazz guitarist Jan Knutson and the brother-sister old-time duo, Giri and Uma Peters (aged 12 and 10 respectively) joined by special guests D.C. area jazz master Steve Abshire, and blues harmonica wizard Phil Wiggins.
