Jerry Douglas, the world's most renowned and in-demand dobro player, has a shelf of awards (including 13 Grammys), more than 2000 recording credits, and peer testimonials like John Fogerty proclaiming Douglas to be his favorite all-time musician.

Jerry Douglas is a connoisseur's musician, a man of many musical borders; he takes you to the frontier of bluegrass, country, blues, folk, and Indie Rock without ever breaking a sweat. The phrase living legend may be overused, but in the case of the master Dobro guitarist Jerry Douglas, it's also an understatement.

His latest album, Traveler, features Douglas kicking up his heels with a raft of luminaries and A-list friends including Eric Clapton, Alison Krauss, Dr. John, Marc Cohn, Mumford & Sons and Paul Simon. This album further elevates his already impressive stature from super-sideman to a bona fide front-rank creator of musical Americana. Do yourself a favor and go listen to "The Boxer" featuring Mumford and Sons on the Paul Simon number. Everything about this track, from the opening Marcus Mumford vocal intro to the flowing harmonies to the exquisite finger picking is spine tingling and quite mind numbing. Roots-music aficionados take notice, this is a show you can not miss.
